Connecting to a community jabber server

If you want to connect quickly, simply open terminal. Then type the following commands :

sugar-control-panel -s jabber jabber.server.url

replace jabber.server.url with the jabber server you with to use

then restart Sugar (warning: close activities first to save) by pressing ctrl+alt+erase, then go to the neighborhood view and have fun!

 But what if you wish to connect to one of several jabber servers because you
 belong to several communities/SIGs?  I can live with one-at-a-time, but it
 would be wonderful if I could pick from a list I've created.  Or at least a
 list of jabber servers I've previously connected to.  How about a syntax for
 "choice <n> from file <x>" and "show me choices in file <x>"? -- davewa
