[JDEV] Internet Explorer/Windows Integration

I was wondering if anyone was exploring the option of writing a Jabber
client using IE/Windows integration?  This would be using the Explorer Bar
features of IE 4.x and 5.x (like Alexa does and the History/Search/etc boxes
that ship with IE), the toolbar bands (like the IE Radio Bar feature or the
Yahoo! Companion), and the desk bands (like the Quick Launch bar or the
toolbar added by ZoneAlarm).  It is all very similar in purpose to the
Mozilla integration work but a very different platform.

See this MS site for details on each :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/browser/ext/overview/bands.asp

If anyone is pursuing this, I'd be interested in possibly assisting or if it
has not been proposed, suggest projects to begin work on.  I can see easily
leveraging the JabberCOM development as the bands are COM objects
themselves.
