In fact, after thinking about it, if you put a file in here for each
server you wanted to run then it'd be really easy to drop in new
transports and the main jabber init.d script could start it.

Scan for *.xml in /etc/jabberd/ and start a server for each one or
similar. Then (for example) the ICQ transport can just drop icq.xml in
and the init.d script DTRT.

This still hasn't happened, though bug #97576 has been open for 203 days
now. In fact there's been an new upstream version of Jabber (1.4.1) for
ages as well.

Bernd, are you still actively maintaining jabber? Not having a
jabber-dev package (or even jabberd.h in the main deb) is still holding
up transports.
