Hi everybody, first post here, don't get mad if I say something stupid :-)

I have a jabber server currently running with about 300 users using at
the same time. It provides basic messaging services for mobile users
(mainly wap) for the most common messengers (msn, icq, yahoo). The
server is implemented using jabberd 1.4.3 and external transports, and
works fine, except for the server load. It doesn't use xdb, and use a
perl script to manage users. I am planning on making a new version of
the jabber server, and I tought about using wpjabber as the main
server since it supports a large amount of users fine (I guess). The
problem would be that it is much easier to add new services and
features on jabberd 1.4.x and I would have to translate the spool data
(would I ?) to wpjabber. If you were going to build a new jabber
server with these features, what would you prefer, wpjabber or jabberd
1.4.x (or maybe other) ? Suggestions are welcome :-)

Thanks in advance,
