  Cannot register Jabber accounts or modify password

Status in empathy package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: empathy

  This is not a bug, but a limitation (whishlist)

  Most of the jabber servers request a registration from the client.
  The password modification also happens on the client.

  Empathy (, on Ubuntu 9.10, allows me to create a new
  'existing' account, but it does not allow me to create a new account
  on a jabber server.

  If I need to create a new jabber account on a server, or if I want to
  modify an existing account password, I need to use a second IM client
  (Psy, Pidign, etc.).
