I must confess to not testing the script; it most likely needs some
(more) debugging. It was really just a Q&D hack to see if it could be

Amazon should deliver my copy of 'programming jabber' real soon now.
Once I have a better handle on the Net::Jabber module I will pick it up
again and make it more robust. For starters it needs a hook into syslog
so it can report a bit more verbosely ;-)

Thanks to Norman and Bruce for helping with this.

Bruce, that script looks almost identical to the one provided by Bart
- which is great for Jon's purposes.

I was thinking about a more full blown transport (much like the one for
the 14 series), but that can be used with any jabber server. 
Probably python/twisted based, and optionally doing the smtp server
itself, but also with an option to use procmail processing and/or
monitor a /var/mail/mailbox file for new mail.  Then it can also do the
wrapping, and unwrapping of the jid/email address.

i.e. a full email transport, but not doing pop3 or imap, rather waiting
for the smtp delivery.
