[Adium-devl] XMPP encryption

We are refining the tests to be more accurate. As I said, all we did was
look at the XMPP "resource". Some clients hardcode this to the name of
the software (e.g., <user at jabber.org/Adium>) whereas other clients
enable the user to change it (e.g., <user at jabber.org/FooBar>). So the
numbers are probably not reliable right now. However, at the time we
took the snapshot today there were 10,748 connected users, so Adium
users were at least 5% of the users -- and I'd think more than that.
I'll report back when we have more accurate statistics.
