Yup as Ulrich says it is a fundamental part of the protocol and servers must
support it (even if they do turn it off for security reasons, i.e. to keep
all comunication internal), but one thing you need to be aware of is that
you will need to support two ways of doing S2S the new XMPP SASL S2S stuff
and the older Jabber Dialback S2S stuff, you will need to support both to
ensure backwards compatibility.
