Windows users don't hack registry. Windows users use setup programs to
install their clients :)
And it's really common that a client has "make me your default
browser/client/something" button, so it's not a problem.

If anyone's interested, this is a sample reg file:

@="URL:XMPP Protocol"
"URL Protocol"=""



@="c:\\your\\client.exe %1"

 xmpp:machekku at chrome.pl
