[jdev] xmppd

I grabbed xmppd, and tried to get it working.  There's a handful of 
changes I needed to make to get my Gaim client able to sign on:

1) In modules/stream.py, a test "session.xmlns <> NS_CLIENT" was being 
made; however session.xmlns is a list.  This test was made twice, I 
changed both instances to "NS_CLIENT not in session.xmlns" and, well, it 
works, but I don't know if it's strictly right. :)

2) Sending a message fails, but in the 0.1 release tarball it fails by 
crashing the server.  In modules/router.py, the error 
ERR_FEATURE_UNAVAILABLE was being used, when there is no such error, and 
it probably should have been ERR_FEATURE_NOT_AVAILABLE or 
ERR_SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE.  I went with the former, and Gaim now 
(expectedly) whines at me when I try to send a message, but the server 
doesn't crash. :)

Also, the server crashes whenever a client disconnects; apparently the 
unregistersession() method is being called twice, but I cannot say why 
without much deeper digging.

There's definitely potential here, though.
