Well, while this program looks very clean, it is very incomplete, I had to hack it to make starttls work, and I have not been able to send a single message using it :(

Unfortunately, I cannot find a better tool that seems mature, maintained, and packaged for Debian. Maybe it is best to improve the current tool.

I am now looking into libstrophe.

Nice code. Need to revisit the jabber protocol to understand what to do.
