I think this is a good point, Matthias. Is anyone aware of any other 
non-traditional programming/scripting languages (such as web-scripting 
languages) that it may be more difficult to suppport a binary wire 
protocol in? Excluding these niche languages would be a bad thing, I think.

It seems there are inherent pros and cons for each way, and each way has 
it's own exclusive uses which the other cannot mimic effectively. 
therefore, would it be possible to create two framing protocols? One 
binary, one XML? Each would run off different ports for JNG/Jabber 2.0. 
Connect to port (example) 8440 for XML, and 8441 for binary. Not a great 
solution, but it solves for both needs.
