Hi there Arsimael,

Nice feature set!

Yea, its memory hungry and about once a month it dies for us. Very
little to control DDoS ... and seeing as its java ... very icky to
develop any addons ourselves. Java is really not my favourite language
when it comes to having an obsession being able to control everything
and modify anything I want to  ;)

Prosody looks pretty cool .... lua ... I don't REALLY like scripting
languages, but at this point in time I'm close to trying anything
really. Not sure I have any hair left after all the hair pulling I've
been doing.

Our organization is very strongly skilled in C/C++, perl ... everything
else is doable, but those are our strongest languages. I kinda liked
jabberd2 for that, there is a jabberd-mod_perl .... so my eyes lightened up.

I can't see that prosody uses SQL though, which is something we would
REALLY like as it allows us to register users in various different ways
and to migrate our current userbase over with zero impact.

I sure will do that.
