Works fine for me with Jaxl client library in PHP:

$ sudo php index.php 
OSType: Linux, Registering shutdown for SIGINT and SIGTERM
OpenSSL: Enabled for CLI
Attempting DIGEST-MD5 Authentication...
Starting Session...
Requesting Feature List...
Requesting Roster List...
Setting Status...
Done

It reminds me very much of the early days of GTalk.  There were lots of things that just didn't work -- like sending IQs between clients other than namespaces that the server knew about.  I'm sure we'll start to see things shape up over time.  Works great for me [shortname]@chat.facebook.com FTW.

I'm not going to hold my breath for federation, but who knows?   Would be cool, but would totally break their friend/chat paradigm.
