Which was an oversight on my part.  Very lame.

Yes indeed.  Since I don't want a normal xmpp server, just the
MUC parts, I don't ponder how to properly 'neuter' out the
main server.  I did run with different hosts for the server and
the muc server at one point with no success.

I have found the first root problem: the host firewall (UFW)
was not allowing outbound xmpp-server traffic.  Solved this
quickly with

  $ sudo ufw allow out xmpp-server

I'm able to create rooms from jabber.org and the google apps
account, so I'll start testing and see what weirdness I encounter.
