I tried it but I had to remove the SSL flag in the check_jabber-specific
code. It is always possible to check with ssl with the --ssl
command-line option so I guess I should consider removing that flag.
Otherwise you don't have the option and must check with SSL.

I also left the return code on mismatches to WARNING as it is the
default for every other invocations of check_tcp that set expect
strings. This can be changed as well, using the --mismatch (-M) switch.

The patch I'm committing is attached.
