BTW, I have just completed a preliminary analysis of U.S. Patent 6,499,344
and I can say that Jabber does NOT infringe on this patent. I'll write a
more detailed report later today. IANAL and we still need to seek out a
professional opinion in this matter, but I think the Jabber community can
rest easy about the threat of this patent.

What has me worried is that there may be other patents pending, and that
Jabber might be construed as infringing upon those. Further research will
be required.
