:)  First comment right off the top.  Cool.  You're really jumping on 
this.  Second, Naming Conventions.  Are you sure you want random people to 
be working under your own namespace...

"When writing a class to act as an IQ handler your class must be called 
com.alsutton.jabberserver.iq.xxxx_handler where xxxx is the name..."

This seems to be an open invitation for name clashes, and abuse of your 
namespace.  I think you should consider changing it to have people use 
their own namespace or at least provide some method for people to avoid 
naming problems.  It is a minor point but I think could lead to other 
future problems...  Of course, I'm thinking of this in terms of "plug-in" 
writing that is developed separately from, and simply added to the 
classpath at deploy time.  If this is for handlers that will/must be 
integrated into the jabserv codebase, you can ignore me.  :)
