Mark, who wrote our initial Bonjour stuff, disagrees. He says that
only the format of the messages is the same. Everything else is vastly
different, and our code base seems to confirm that.
Someone should try sending iChat some XMPP stanzas other than
<message/> and see what happens. A good test would be to send iChat
<iq to='whatever' id='asdf' type='get'><foo xmlns='http://gaim.sf.net' /></iq>
and see if iChat responds with an IQ error.
If it doesn't, there's probably no point in trying to reuse the Jabber code.
