Hm, what's the problem? Statelessness is what you always have to deal
with. Once you're logged in mod_perl holds up the connection to the
jabber server for you (sure there must be some timeout or so). Session
is tracked by apache itself (or by a cookie).

http://oid.jabber.org/?oid=1102 ?

All this greatly announced web client projects don't seem to have come
