There's new xs-config, ejabberd-xs and idmgr rpms on the
olpcxs-testing repo now that implement the above, plus

 - ejabberd-xs sets up the Online group automagically
 - domain changes are handled gracefully -- when you change the
domain, the old DB is removed (it's all generated data anyway) and the
new DB is setup with the Online group automatically.
 - removed the "admin" privileges from the 'admin' acct as it's no longer needed
 - removed the web admin UI for ejabberd

The webadmin UI and the admin user can be re-enabled by uncommenting
the appropriate secitons in the ejabberd config file.

Overall, this means that Moodle gets a sane, clean slate automatically. Good!
