Ugh, I hope that they don't stall half-way between this transition off 
of XMPP the same way that Google stalled their "conflicting accounts" 
transition (which is still causing complaints from our users).

As much as it sucks that Google is abandoning XMPP, at least we will 
have the option to enable Hangouts in our Google Apps organization 
without causing a conflict with our XMPP service.  But if they don't 
complete the transition, then everyone loses.
