I actually prefer "Contact List" but "Roster" seems to be well defined for
Jabber - which I can live with - although it does sound a little like there
should be some house-hold chores involved :-)

I've always been confused between "Transports"/"Gateways"/"Agents" so if
someone could clear that up for me that would be great.
