Some questions :

1/ Does this mean the "old version" (in C) won't be maintained anymore ?

2/ Is it really that modular ? Any idea of how much work will be
required to create a Yahoo/AIM/ICQ transport ?

3/ How does it scale ? What makes you think it scales well/not well ?

4/ What I did like with XDB was the fact that it hid all the details
about data storage, so you could use MySQL for example. Are there any
plans of allowing to use MySQL for data storage ?

Thank you :)
