It's just a matter of logging in and sending the XML you posted.  I have 
a script that does this using Jabber::Connection (not Net::Jabber) if 
you are interested in that.

As for output, you'll have to figure out what format you want.  The 
jabber server will hand you back an XML packet like so:

<iq id='3' type='result' to='admin at jabber.org/test' 
from='jabber.org'><query xmlns='jabber:iq:admin'><who><presence 
from='ralphs at jabber.org/Exodus'><show>xa</show><priority/><x 
xmlns='jabber:x:delay' stamp='20030129T22:42:48' 
from='graeme at blueairnetworks.com/Exodus'/>
<presence [... from other users ...] />

You can display this any way you want - just the usernames, or more 
complicated - depends on what you want.
