Very cool, and there's lots of room in this "market" so welcome!

Well, hmm... after looking at what you have online for it already, the
only glaring difference that I can see between your effort and Jabber is
that you are using a binary based protocol and use a master-server
approach. What other important differences are there?  There could easily
be some shared effort/code here if many of the components are similiar :-)
