The networking-code is generally abstracted into "users", "sessions". It would 
be quite easy to extend it to use jabber, and I think it would be great. All 
necessary would be enabling Teamwork::Client to manage a user-list from a 
jabber-account, and writing a specialization of Teamwork::Session(or similar 
named) that can send/receive data and attach one such session to each 

So in the end using jabber would have ment some additional work, and the 
planned feature-list was too long to do that. 
Besides, I didn't know about jabber when I wrote the proposal. :-)

Btw. I'm not sure though whether jabber would be usable for real-time editing 
of a document.

greetings, David
