@cjd I note the legislation doesn't impact e2e-encrypted messages yet. Good reason to get all your contacts onto Signal.
@cjd Anything that requires IMAP and SMTP setup is a non-starter. I don't understand how you can put Delta and Signal in the same category in good faith.
@kaip @cjd On a low power device RAM and CPU cycles matter. And on the server it means you need more of both per connection. It's network bound, so bottlenecks aren't usually what matter, but parsing XML at wire speed on a 10G link is certainly going to use a lot of CPU that you could be using for other things.
AFAIK no protocol before or since has used streaming XML.
2. A quick look at the source code of some XMPP clients shows this is false. Not fully supporting XML would be the correct way of doing it because of (1).
Current XMPP server (and client) implementations are orders of magnitude more RAM and CPU efficient than let's say Matrix.
