This question seems a bit rhetorical, but I'll answer it ;-)

For me it's because installing and configuring some software seemed  
like a much more manageable task than learning a new programming  
language (that seems very different to any I have seen before),  
learning the existing structure of a codebase, and then learning how  
to configure the jabber server anyway in order to write and test the  
code to control the configuration.

Admittedly I have chosen the quick and easy path (sounds like  
something Yoda would warn against ;-) so I guess I can be accused,  
rightly, of being a bit lazy and impatient. As you say, the domtool  
interface would be more useful in the long term to others, but I  
thought others might feel the same way I do about writing an  
interface, and I could help them (albeit maybe only a little bit) by  
writing a wiki page on setting up their own jabber server.
