[ejabberd] agents vs. discovery

No transports show up ... so adding transport contacts would have to be
done by full jid

No conference rooms show up ... so you have to know the name of the room
you want to join

Those are the big hitters ... there are probably others.

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.  =)
