Roadmap Revised

After an investigation about the migration to Apache MINA, I have found that MINA could be insufficent to meet our needs. We needed at least a lightweight HTTP engine, and a servlet launcher engine, because Openfire uses servlets to handle BOSH requests. During my search, I came upon grizzly, which could be a good alternative for us. It has an HTTP engine and a servlet launcher engine built in. However, we needed to make scalability test to be sure about its performance, and these tests could take some time. That's why I deferred working on Openfire's BOSH connection manager.

By the way, my mentor Gaston offered me to do the BOSH update also on the client side. So, I will be working on SparkWeb's BOSH implementation from now on.
