Yes. Good.

Toward that end, what I'll do is run through the list of Jabber capabilities
-- pretty extensive, at this point -- and evaluate each of them from the
standpoint of what would be required to implement each of them to spec on
our system. At the very least that exercise should give us a ranking of the
features by oomph, on the grounds that oomph values (development time,
processor cycles, watts) ought to be roughly proportional on any system.
