Yes, definetely. Just to spoil everyones eagerness:

There is no firewall in place yet, but at least vogler.d.o already
runs stretch with the stable backports of prosody and prosody-modules,
so we *could* have a firewall. So far, nobody found the time to do the
next step, AFAIK.

My own experience is, that spam (or "spim") is not as big a problem
as it was one year ago. No idea, why. The few spam that I get, is
"invitation spam" (= contact requests). Unfortunately, prosody
firewalls cannot handle this, if I'm not mistaken.
