Of interest perhaps is that there seems to be no more ejabberd traits
in the new service - and its behaviour doesn't seem to match any other
server fingerprints I have. Seems they decided to develop the whole of
their stack themselves this time.

As to whether it behaves any better in general use - I haven't gone
that far yet, I'd be curious to know. Better standards compliance
could indicate that they are at least keeping the federation door open
(after all it didn't turn out so badly for Google - though admittedly
Facebook have a lot more to lose than Google had back then).
