[JDEV] Flash 5's XMLSocket vs Jabber 1.2

I think the person who wrote XMLSocket had very little clue how XML 
workeed above the basic markup. It appears to be an incremental parser 
that will *only* give events on document end, and generates XML 
documents on the sending pipe deliminated by a null character.

Someone at macromedia deserves a flogging, anyone close to their 
headquarters? ;-)
