Yep, +1 to this. Languages are important (toolkits / libraries to XMPP
enable "stuff"), but plugging into running apps that already have a deployed
base gets us really nice reach.

I think that mobile + geolocation is an important "front" to focus on.

Why brand your phone with Yahoo!...when you could run Jabber natively (brand
it as yourcustomer at eviltelco.com) and also connect to all the other services
your users want/demand to use. OK, that's an IM example, but you get the
picture.
