That's not what I said. I don't care about IRC being secure or not, I care
about the possibility of some software to be more secure - and that's
precisely what I said. With gabber, as said elsewhere in this thread, you
can encrypt your messages if need be - and I've had numerous occassions when
it was desirable (like, say, somebody sending me their machine's root
password - it's a valid reason for encryption, IMHO).

It is your opinion, mine is stated above. I don't really know why would mail
make more sense than jabber, or the other way around - it's just a matter of
preference, nothing more. Both are valid and neither
contradicts the other - and, I think, it should be possible to create a
jabber agent that could use, say, RDF feeds to export them to subscribed
jabber users or one that gateways the DWN mails to the jabber users.

Do you see anything we could lose?
