I seem to recall that the last time people discussed reusing a generic XML
library rather than a custom one, it was discovered that XMPP isn't
quite actually XML - it has a bunch of crazy restrictions that basically
mean you need an XMPP-specific library. If there's a third-part XMPP
library that could be plugged in, that would be a very interesting thing
to know.
