	Hmmm... there is always bitlbee. :)

	It is not a Jabber client, but allows someone to use any irc client
to connect to IM networks (like Jabber, GTalk, ICQ). And BTW, switch to
Jabber does not determines where irc.debian.org should point to (unless we
drop it, which is non-sense).

	IMHO, having Jabber is another point and discussing it should be
dropped on this thread. Maybe, create a wiki page with reasons to move and
to not move could help us to check the points (pros and cons) and decide
which is better for our users and, of course, for us.

	Kind regards,
