I don't think I did really, the part I cut out made it clear that you  
think clients and servers are not of large-scale benefit to the  
community, but didn't make it clear what you considered worthy in  
their place.

I don't understand what type of project it is you're pushing, really;  
protocol is out of the scope of the SoC (it must be code, not  
documentation), compliance of protocols is an issue of servers and  
clients, and the public jabber network itself is a collection of  
servers and clients.

I think a couple of examples of projects of a larger scale would at  
the least allow me to better understand what it is I'm disagreeing  
with ;)
