[JDEV] Server problems

I don't have an answer for you in regards to the connection troubles, but
due to recent trouble I had connecting to jabber.org I came up with the same
question.  What do I do if my main jabber server goes down?  How can I
easily get (at least) my contact list to another server so I don't have to
re-register everyone?

I did not come up with a quick solution and wonder what the rest of the JDEV
have to say.  I think currently we are relying on servers not going down (or
our connection to them going down) :)

Maybe a "backup server" idea where the servers could share roster info.....
