[jdev] Google Talk transport?

I would guess that Google would be willing to open up to a network of 
other jabber servers once the problem of spam is solved.

The only reason we don't have spam (spim, rather) now on the Jabber 
network is that the market is too small for it.

It remains though to be seen whether a formula can be worked out to 
combat the spam possibilities. It could be something along the lines of 
ill-behaving jabber servers being blocked from the network of the 
SPIM-fighting servers. But it's easy to just change the domain of your 
jabber so you're accepted again and start spamming again.

There's a possibility that such a formula will never be found. Or maybe 
it will take years to design new necessary protocols.

For these reasons I doubt Google will open up in the next many months. 
In the meantime I believe we would have use for a Google-Talk transport.
