[jdev] Message limitations

Speaking strictly from a protocol perspective, there are no limitations
on the size of an XMPP stanza. 

I have personally sent through stanzas of several megabytes (by mistake,
on a few occasions) and the server I was using (SoapBox Server) worked
just fine. 

There may be any number of practical limitations depending on the server
you're using, how much bandwidth you have available, how busy the server
is, and other related factors.

Does anyone know if there is any limitations on the size of the body 
section of a message, either in Jabber or in Net::Jabber?

It's just i've run into some errors caused by sending a larger then 
normal message (1480 bytes).
