On e.jabber.ru currently running ejabberd with slightly outdated version of
SASL authentification (based on xmpp-core-08).  It is open for registration, so
client developers can freely use it for testing.  I'll update implementation to
confirm latest xmpp-core soon.

Clients can use SASL if stream version='1.0', and old mechanism otherwise.
