I don't think jabberd 1.4.3 can do either off-the-shelf (but I could be 
wrong), but XMPP-compliant servers (including jabberd2) should support 
unique server-allocated resources via resource binding[1].  You could 
then use a chat room, using the server-generated resource for the 
nickname (provided all room occupants come from the same server).
