I set up a wiki to discuss this thing.

Feel free to contribute:


I also got some negative feedback. For those not interested may not 
discuss :) Btw. with standard I do not mean that there should be only 
one library in future but rather make it possible to share existing 
Jabber account between different Jabber applications (libraries) - 
and doing this without asking user to type in all the account 
information into each application preferences.
