Hi Lloyd!,

First of all, super project!. I would say its more a library than an actual client (almost on the same level as strophe.js and stanza.io). Even though I use strophe for web stuff I still see the use cases for this library and others of the same kind.

Talking about stanza.io, I don't see that one on the site either?. Shouldn't we promote these libraries, even though they are quite new?

> XMPP-FTW exposes XMPP over a websocket* and allows users to interact using named 'events' and JSON. The server itself sits between the browser and an XMPP server and translates messages on-the-fly. Events allow the server to fill in gaps which allows the JSON messages to only include the parts they need.
