The old JabberView used to have a nifty status indicator which showed 
the uptime of servers and their transports.
How about bringing that back into action?  Maybe this time it can also 
check for S2S connectivity, latency from various geographic positions, etc.
Add to that a logging system so the server reliability history can be 
graphed and users will get a powerful tool to sort out the highest 
quality servers. :-)
