Also a side benefit of using Jabber is that you could do some
interesting "out-of-game" interaction with in-game elements without
much extra effort.  Using the existing server-2-server protocol you
could have people in the game chatting to those not in the game.  You
could have a presence and status message reflect what is happening in
the game, e.g. "Hal is Not Available: playing Foobar and in the
Kill-all-Orcs-within-1-mile Quest!".  That would be neat for other
players and friends to see.  I could go on, lots of possibilities
