[JDEV] ANN: Client Developer's Cheat Sheet rev.1

Over the weekend I wrote some documentation on how to write a Jabber 
client (rather, the back end of one.) It's an overview that mostly links 
to material in the JPO and JPG but collates it in a sequence that's more 
tutorial rather than reference in form. It also clears up some areas 
that are left very vague in the official docs (e.g. roster management) 
thanks to the helpful answers I got on this mailing list.


This is a supplement to, not a replacement for, the official docs, and 
in fact I'd be more than happy if some of its organization or content 
got folded into future revs of the JPO.

Since this is a first draft and since I'm a Jabber newbie (although one 
who has gotten his own client up and limping) it's likely that there are 
errors. If you see anything wrong or have any other feedback, I'd like 
to hear from you. (Definitely on the to-do list: converting the JPO and 
JPG references into hyperlinks.)
