[ejabberd] How do conference rooms scale?

You are assuming that all the users would be visible in the  
conference room. I'm thinking of a bunch of MUC servers all having  
the same JID and implementing the same conference room. You can have  
a manageable number of users in each and messages from other servers  
could come from a hidden user or admin or something like that.

I'm not trying to implement a chat per se, I'm just piggybacking on  
the XMPP protocol.
