ECF and peer chat using XMPP

Chris and Scott got an XMPP server up and running, and we loaded it up with the Bugzilla account information for all the Eclipse committers. We've been having fun exploring the possibilities of chat within Eclipse itself, using the ECF tools.

It's interesting to know that, without leaving Eclipse, I can initiate a discussion with peers on my project (or anyone else, for that matter), send screen captures and files, and likely do a bunch of other cool stuff I haven't yet discovered, like launch a nifty shared editor with a colleague.

There are still some wrinkles to iron out, but this is Cool Stuff.
