Thanks for all your tremendous work in this field, Daniel.

Is there some comparison available e.g. at our wiki?

I am thinking something like https://wiki.debian.org/Groupware - I know 
there is https://wiki.debian.org/UnifiedCommunications and a bunch of 
sub-pages but there I have located only install guides, no comparison, 
which I find essential for a discussion like you raise here.

Putting it on wiki instead of summarizing in an email, you encourage 
contribution from others (I happen to use Pidgin, for example, and might 
attempt to fill in the bits for that in a comparison chart if it 
existed, but I don't feel knowledgeable enough to put up a chart myself 
- you seem quite knowledgeable and might even have the data already.
