The problem if you don't write it as a module for your webserver is, 
that you can't use it from Java applets as they only can connect to 
where they have been loaded from (same is true for other things like Flash).
If you write it as an extension to the Jabber server you either have to 
listen on an other port or ip address then the webserver. If you use an 
other IP address you have the descibed problems, if you use an other 
port you can get in problems with restrictive web proxies ... and they 
are one of the reasons why web clients are used most.
