Does my server have to be accessible to the rest of the world in order for
this to work?  Will my server keep the connection to aim.jabber.org open,
or will aim.jabber.org have to open a new connection periodically to my
server (which is behind a firewall)?

I just tried this, but my client (Gabber) presented an empty agent
registration dialog.

In general, what's the Jabber protocol say about intranet servers?  I
think that, as a client of an internal server, I should be able to add
people to my roster who are on an external Jabber server, but if I
understand correctly now, that's not possible.  You'd almost need a
jabber-to-jabber transport...
