well there's always my one;
http://prowiki.net/user/milk/wiki.cgi?JabberClientReview
it needs a little work (and input), although i did make the 
main and review pages clearer a month or so ago. 

imo, a comprehensive jabber client feature comparison list would a) 
make it very easy for new (and existing) users to be aware of the 
choices available and b) make client authors (more) aware of the 
features (mainly the more 'interesting' jeps) that their program needs 
to implement to compete in the 'marketplace' and gain more users and 
thus hopefully spur client development. i remember the last time this 
was discussed, someone mentioned (well, i can't remember if it was me 
or someone else) a possible star rating system for the ammount of jeps 
a client supports.
