Implementing the basic client capabilities in Psi was IMO pretty easy to do (i
did it in less than a day IIRC). I like the fact that there is no need for a
registrar, which makes it a lot easier to create non-official plugins, without
needing to worry that you conflict with existing 'short names' etc.  Together
with the server extensions, this is also pretty efficient on bandwidth.

However, my imlementation doesn't do conlfict resolution yet (so it assumes
that caps information is always correct), which might make it a tad 
more complicated. This part of the JEP is what bothers me a bit, that it's not 
very robust against malicious contacts.
