As the JSF we also must be progressive. If we have at least 1 client on
every OS this is enough for now. If members don't want to install a new
client they can still vote in the meeting or by email. But I'm sure once we
have such an application other client developers will add ad-hoc-commands
pretty fast. This is at least what I have seen with other JEPs. Once they
were implemented in a server every client, library and server developer
added support for it pretty fast (e.g. stream compression).

This would also be a cool reference application for demos and speeches. If
somebody is looking for a new project go ahead ;-).
Our XMPP projects were very popular at SOC, and i worked with many students
in the past which worked on xmpp project for their thesis. This brings up
again our "bounty system discussion" we had in January 2005 [1]. We could
have a list of sponsored projects and non sponsored academic projects.
