The public Jabber server at Jabber.com has had some problems the past few
days.  It was down several hours today, and several hours intermittently
over the past few days.

If you're developing a "very-beta-beta" Jabber client, I REALLY wish you
would run your own test server, instead of our public server.  Or use
Jabber.org.  At least one of these apparent network attacks on our public
server appears to have been an under-development Jabber application gone
haywire.  When one of the premier Jabber servers in the world goes down
because of some client developer's lack of sanitary testing, it hurts the
Jabber movement.  I'd really hate to have to get medieval and start blocking
people who use "unapproved" clients on Jabber.com.

Not really.  You have to have different accounts on different servers.
