I have a web site that has millions of registered
users. A given user may want to see the current
presence information for a focused group of these

How would you suggest I do this. Here are a few of my

1. I login to jabber a this user and subscribe to
presence events for his roster. This presents some
challenges since it would require many-many thousands
of logins to jabber and tons of subscription messages.
A real burden for the server.

What would be ideal is if I could provide Jabber with
some user information as an admin and it will tell me
that users current presence. Nevermind all this roster
and subscription stuff.
