when I was writing the jabbertools importer, I realized that unless I kept
the http connection open (by spewing data back from the server
continuously), everything would seem to 'hang' -- this might be what's
happening with you.  As for viewing STDERR, methinks that there is a simple
way to redirect that output to STDOUT or another filehandle or stream.  If
you've got programming perl from oreilly, it should be in there.  If my book
wasn't at work right now, I'd look it up because I probably have a better

As for the user services site, it sounds like this might be a good
opportunity for cooperation and collaboration.  I've written some of the
stuff you are talking about with the services in jabbertools
soon-to-be-in-cvs-once-i-get-off-my-rear (though I've kind of slacked off on
development as of late :\ ) and I know that Justin Mecham at least used to
plan to have a section of the JabberCentral network devoted to this sort of
thing (jabbertools.org).

Good luck
