The Jabber WindowGram Client (JWGC) is a Jabber client that does not behave like a standard chat client. Instead, it is intended to look and feel almost exactly like MIT's Zephyr system. Whereas most chat clients focus on a single window to house a conversation between another person and yourself, JWGC pops up a separate window for every message you receive. To respond, you run a command-line application, type in your message, and send it on it's way. If you are familiar with the Zephyr system, JWGC should be trivial to adapt to.
