Mediawiki will benefit from the new features, but the Jabber community will 
benefit from the network effects caused by several thousands of Wikipedia 
members that register a Jabber account. If the features are so cool for 
Wikipedia members, they will probably will all get a Jabber ID really fast. 
If then there is a new Wikipedia member, he probably will also register a 
Jabber account to chat with the existing Wikipedia user base that are all 
using Jabber. For more details about network effects, Metcalfe's Law etc., 
see Wikipedia ;-)

Mvg, Sander Devrieze.
