The more I think about it, yeah, I'd have to agree with Sander.   
Going with the other jabberds probably wouldn't be that great an  
idea.  One other thought though, what specifically are you losing by  
not having agents support right now?  Is the Jabber, Inc. client  
incapable of interacting with the server if it doesn't support  
disco?  Take my client that I haven't touched in a long time,  
JWGC...  I never had time to build disco support into it but for  
normal chatting and such it doesn't matter.  I don't typically need  
to probe for a list of services, or anything of that nature.  Mostly  
I'm just curious what aspects of agents/disco you really need right  
now.  =)
