Right - I think the XSF's own interop a year ago proved that basic  
S2S interop is fine in all modern servers, and even more advanced  
features from 3920's S2S are perfectly fine (like  
X.509/SASL-EXTERNAL, and so on).

As I recall, the only real problem we showed then was that  
certificate revocation support was in general weaker, but that was a  
year ago after all.

jabber.org itself has not published the old records for as long as I  
can remember, although no doubt Kev and PSA can fill in some detail
