Apologies. I tend to use Mozilla as my newsreader, hooking in to
Gmane.org's NNTP feed for this mailing list. Hadn't checked my email
this weekend, so I missed your private emails. Sorry about that.
I will do as you suggest above. Also, as you suggested in the private
emails, I will
* update the sample jabber.xml file and post here when ready
* send the necessary Makefile changes to the respective module owners
for JUD, MU-Conference, etc.
* read up on cvs diff -u (again, sorry for that. Just haven't had much
time to read up on diff. I understand what it does; just need to get
comfortable with the switches/etc.)

Point taken, and you're right. OS repositories (even one as simple as
Cygwin's setup.exe) are definitely better. So no counter-argument from
me. :-) [Just have to add some instructions for Cygwin users, as Pth
isn't installed nor available currently as a Cygwin package, and so will
require a manual download/compile/install. More to add to jabberd's WWW
