Transports and Other Goodies

XMission's Jabber server has the ability to connect and talk to clients with other messaging protocols such as AIM, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and ICQ. Unfortunately, most of these have not been ported to the version of the Jabber server we are using. For now, the following transports are installed:

PyMSNt: Allows communication with MSN clients. MU-Conference: Allows for chat room style conversations.
