    Ready for local people to play with.
    The current implementation is that we munge the mysql DB on ops directly,
    underneath jabberd. We add/del users from the authreg table, and set up
    buddy lists in the roster-items and roster-groups tables. modgroups will
    invoke the modjabberbuddies whenever a user is added or removed from a
    group, although currently I am building buddy lists for just the top level
    The "My IM" link in the collaboration menu will tell the user their
    jabber ID on the Emulab chat server (jabber.emulab.net) and also give
    them their plain text password to plug into their chat client.
    I also installed a java applet (Jeti) that is a simple chat client that
    I found off the jabberware page. Like all applets, it exhibits a degree
    of flakiness, but I really do not expect too many people to use it.
