I stumbled over lluna.de but quickly dismissed it because it
seemed to need web server setup.  As Eric (Jeti) pointed out
some days ago, I was mistaken, the setup is optional.

That would be nice.  It's very simple: the client calculates
the MD5 of the URL (which will be the room name), queries a
remote API to find the server hosting the room for that URL,
then joins the room.

Enabling any Jabber client that already does MUC would be a
matter of minutes, I think.

If anyone is interested, just ask.  As soon as I'm a little
less busy with coding I'll try to write some docs, but it's
better if I have an idea of what docs people want me to
write. :-)
