[jdev] differentiated karma in jabber1.x

Hey Matthias,
Thanks for responding. I went ahead and put the enhancement request into bugzilla. 
About configuration by host:
If you make the config by host, then someone has to rememer to update the jabber config every time a no-karma client instance is added or moved. In the game-engine case below, there is a pool of game-engine servers that use a pool of jabber servers. The app would scale by adding servers to either or both pools, and it would be good if that process didn't involve remembering to reconfigure and restart all the jabbers.
Would it be possible instead to do karma settings/exemptions by JID?
    <user jid="gameengineuser1" exempt="true"/> 
    <user jid="gameengineuser2" exempt="true"/>
    <user jid="someotheruser">

Hi Larry!

Please request this as an enhancement feature on
http://bugzilla.jabberd.org/ - But probably I'll implement it in a way
that you can define different karma settings for special hosts. I guess
this solves your problem as well and is more flexible.
