[JDEV] Connecting to the server.

I always use digest from my client to the server when connecting, but I thought I noticed that passwords were still in clear text when receiving presence messages from transports (MSN, ICQ, etc.)
Maybe this is specific to JabberCOM -- Peter?

userIDs it must transmit in the clear (unless you can think of something
'really' clever). Passwords can be transmitted in a digest (hashed)
format, assuming the client and server support this.
SSL is overkill for anything that is to scale, but SASL was at least
considered a while back.
