If people want the public chat, why don't they just use gtalk or
whatever public service they prefer?

I don't see a reason for us to run one private and one public server. In
fact, I don't see a reason for us to run a public one at all - if we
were running that, we could just as well run nothing.

AFAIK every reasonable IM client people would use today can easily add
two jabber accounts (or more), so I don't see the problem, really.
