I hope that Facebook Chat will *not* support XEP-0078 and that all old
clients will start to support SASL authentication, which has been a
standard part of XMPP since the publication of RFC 3920 in 2004.
XEP-0078 was deprecated by the XSF in 2006 and made obsolete in 2008.
It's time to leave that old protocol behind now. :)
