Actually, for any service that'll support it. :-)  I remember having
to futz around and download some other ICQ client to get that set up.
The rest is, well, hazy.  I'm actually toying with my own jabber
server off and on, and saw in the Admin Guide
<http://www.jabber.org/admin/adminguide.html> that registration seems
to be a query/response type setup ("Checkpoint #2"
<http://www.jabber.org/admin/adminguide.html#config-filesystem>), and
fairly straightforward.  And yes, the jabber module appears to work.

Sure.  Just searching on freshmeat:

http://freshmeat.net/projects/centericq/  Support for registering
Jabber and ICQ -- GPL

http://freshmeat.net/projects/gaim/  Support for registering w/ Jabber
(manual has pointers to registering w/ other services...can I file a
docbug for AYTTM? :-) ) -- GPL

Even though I haven't to date used the jabber protocol much at all,
it's looking to me like it's where I'm personally going to be moving,
since its advantages (running your own server while interoperating w/
others, gateways to other IM services) seem really compelling to me.
