Yeah, my specific component represents 1 (or a few) bots which  
themselves may have extremely large rosters.   So writing it as a  
component allows me to control the whole roster/presence process in a  
scaleable, fault-tolerant way.    I'm using ejabberd to back it up.

Though again, the goal is to create a general framework that makes  
component (not necessarily bot) creation easy... or at least  
easier.    It will probably never be as easy as writing a simple  
client using xmpp4r-simple, but at least you won't have to reinvent  
the wheel... as I'm having to do.

Who are the gnip folks and what are they doing that is so relevant?
