To make this happen, I think we need the following:
8. Perhaps centralized registration at jabber.org, which you can then
use to connect to any local xmpp service (pt.jabber.org or whatever).
I really like this idea !
As we are speaking XMPP, why not use (or even abuse) pubsub stuff
when something is published onto the website ? We could easily
imagine a dual publishing flow: one for the old HTTP and one
dedicated for the bright new XMPP ? This way we could both
satisfy users like me and we could also demo that PubSub *is
really a damn killer feature*.
