[Haskell-cafe] XMPP library recommendations

I'm looking for suggestions for XMPP libraries. So far I have found
three on Hackage. Thanks to the authors of these - I think a lot of good
can come from XMPP in Haskell.
However, all of them appear to be minimally maintained, if at all:
* XMPP - only one upload, over 2 years ago. Does not support TLS
(required by many modern servers). Does not support SASL (also
required by many modern servers). After finding the options on a
test server to disable the requirements for TLS and SASL, it worked.
* network-protocol-XMPP - uploaded recently to fix 7.4 build issue,
not much other recent activity. Refuses to connect to a test
account with "Received empty challenge" (this does not appear to be
an accurate error message, but rather a bug in XML parsing). A bit
more low-level than I'm looking for.
* haskell-xmpp - only one upload, over 1 year ago. Connects and
works. I like the design. Is hard-coded to write debug messages to
stdout, making it a bit of a problem for programs that use stdout
(though a one-liner mod to the code would fix that). Says it's
"alpha" and "work in progress".
What experience do people have with these? Any recommendations?
