[SUCS] Jabber accounts on the new server

As you may know, we are in the process of setting up a new computer to act
as the society's main server. As part of this, we will be using different
software for our Jabber service which uses the same authentication method
as most of the other services.
In particular, this means:
* All members will automatically get Jabber accounts - no need to
* Your Jabber password will be the same as your other passwords, i.e., the
one you use to log in to the workstations in the room and check your
email. If your client saves your password, remember to change it when
you first connect to the new server.
* Non-members will lose their Jabber accounts.
* Any members whose Jabber username is different to their system username
will ALSO lose their accounts. E.g., if your email address is
johnsmith at sucs.org and your Jabber address is john at sucs.org, you'll lose
the latter (but you will automatically get the Jabber address
johnsmith at sucs.org).
If the last point will affect you, please send an email to admin at sucs.org
telling us your system and Jabber usernames and we'll see that your data
gets transferred to your system username.
