Well, I'm glad that somebody stepped forward to provide a particular
example that will be hard for anybody here to argue against of why the XML
transfer layer _should_ be seperated out, so entities can use different
ones (my original statement, which caused the whole controversy in the
first place).  Plain old TCP with no compression is not necessarily the
best option, and arbitrarily limiting Jabber to that is a bad idea.

I won't say any more, since I have no interest in being thrown off
the list.  (If I didn't care about Jabber, I wouldn't waste hours a week
arguing with anybody who dares to disagree with me. . .)
