This is already working. For example, if you use Sugar on a Stick you are
using an XS that can work with XO and non-XO computers today. This is 0.5.2
XS installed from the ISO and regularly updated via yum. If you take any
installation of Sugar and set the collaboration server to
jabber.sugarlabs.org it should work. No special configuration is needed to
support Sugar on non-XO computers that I am aware of.
