Well, I've gotten the server & it's troddery compiled & installed. Not a
small job. I have the GNOME client compiled & running - seems fine.
Nothing works, though. Not sure why. Logs seem to be full of errors -
wrapped in XML. When my wetware is upgraded, and I can parse XML natively,
that'll be considered a good then. I'm downloading & compiling stuff from
CVS at the moment. If that works, I'll be happy.

Could be. The idea is that you can let applications become jabber clients,
and message each other. However, that's very like a human interface to
something like CORBA. That said, wouldn't it be nice to be able to send
netscape on your home box a message "Save & shutdown", from another system.
Thing is, that because it's server-based, if it evolves much, it becomes
very like email...and then you wonder what's the poing.
Kate, beta testing on the bleeding edge...
