There is so much talk on what a Jabber Client should be, me thinks we should
build a summary of the arguments for future UI reference.  And use that to
new UI IM clients as they get started on their journey to swell design.
Any new
UI documents in the works as a response to the first one (which honestly i
reading as an albeit contested guide) ?  I would be happy to aggregate the
existing public
discussions, but I think are lots of offline talks going on as well.
