why IM? media, socks,  I get, but a IM server? Isn't the idea that we  
would suggest creating the account at @jabber.org?

Or would @pt.jabber.org IM accounts exist also?

Agreed, although I don't think that the volunteers could do much here  
except translate the how-to's for each client.

I'm still a bit confused with this one. If we have the IM server @  
jabber.org, isn't all this common? Or something for client developers  
to consider?

Yeah, confused again.

Can't see that far right now.

Keep local what should be local, I think.

Relays, for example.
