A *lot* of work was put into the commercial server to make it scale so
high -- optimizing the internal delivery logic for messages per second,
tightening and tweaking everything that could be tightened and tweaked,
etc. To make the open-source server scale that high, we'd need to put the
same kind of effort into the jabberd server. It's a lot of work and
personally my knowledge of C is not up to the task... :)
