Xenophile scripts are just clients as well.  They don't interact with the
jabberd server any differently than a regular client.  But, as I said
before, anything on a non-open system will be a pretty ugly hack.

That remote shell daemon is sort of silly.  It'd be cooler to have links to
project description, etc pop up when you cd'd into your projects directory


If you understand, things are just as they are.  If you do not understand,
