I have some gateways running on my server, too - for example one thing that
allowed me to use some Polish IM - GaduGadu. There's a separate client for
it, but I really much prefer using the jabber transport 'cause it lets me
get rid of yet another app running in the background. There are things that
don't work in jabber like one would like (for example selective presence or
per-agent presence) but it's really a nice thing to have when you don't give
a damn about other IMs/conferencing systems and you occasionally need to use
them (note, I do use IRC but not on freenode, for the same reason many
people stopped using their network, so it would be a nice thing not having
to fight with bitchx to use two servers at once but instead to log in to an
IRC gateway on Debian and be done with it).
