I contacted elmex. What he is working on would be Net::XMPP2 or
something clearly different, as it will not have the same API.

I found on JabberStudio.org that there was a different bug fix applied
to the source code in the CVS repository about 15 months ago, but that
was never set to CPAN. I have to patch my changes with those and
retest before doing anything.

Is there a way to add me to the Net::XMPP project so that I'd have a
commit bit for Net::XMPP and Net::Jabber. I don't imagine too much
changing since many Perl projects are using other XMPP/Jabber
libraries now.
