Could you give me a list (off-list if you prefer).

I've been testing server-side Unicode handling a lot recently, and  
finding clients that break *just so* turns out to be really quite  
hard.

As I recall, Pidgin v2.5.5 doesn't stringprep jids, which is quite  
helpful. Otherwise, many clients do, if they provide any unicode  
entry at all. If all clients do behave perfectly WRT stringprepping,  
then there's actually nothing for servers to do, which makes testing  
what servers should be doing very tricky indeed.

Dave.
