we have something like this at Sapo that has been serving us well. It
scale to a nice number of hits per sec (tested up to 10k hits/sec,
with a single server).
We can clean up the component and share it if people are interested.
Se below for more info.

we use an external component and a feature of the server that mirrors
presence information to it. It would be very simple to switch this to
registration-based or roster-based solution.
You either register with it like a MSN transport, or add a contact in

You do that on the URL itself. like http://presence.site/SKIN/JID
No extra effort needed.

We have two webservers in our setup, for redundancy. And they only
need to share a filesystem (NFS for example) between them. With a bit
more work, even that requirement can be dropped.
Our setup does not involve any database at all, to reduce bottlenecks.

I don't understand this, can you explain it better what you mean?

This would be no problem with our setup.
