Prosody was the first server to allow multiple resources behind a
single nick (AFAIK, I implemented it in Prosody). I think the ejabberd
folks were looking into implementing that, but not sure what their
progress is.

Switching servers isn't hard, migration scripts would have you up and
running quickly. The main thing you'll miss from Openfire is the
web-based admin console.
