Hmm, I'd suggest looking again.  I'm using psi, and with PyMSNt it did
work, so I'm guessing you're probably just missing something small.  And
neither am I an expert, i know the internal ejabberd architecture about
as well as my grandma, i just helped with some tls stuff once and since
this is a low volume list I just stayed subscribed.
