I can see here a problem that you don't have any
way to block storage of forbidden contents like pornographic
movies,pictures, mp3s or pirated software.
We should really check it before getting into the troubles.

The solution we're working on is to create the transfer
server. One user that sends file is connecting to the HTTP
server using POST and cookie that identifies the file.
Another is connecting using GET with cookie that identifies
the file. And Apache is only responsible for connecting these
two sessions.
The cookie and server address is passed trough the jabber.

I will try to send this transfer server (
should be available under GPL like licence )
at the end of this week.
