Sounds a bit like OpenIM, only OpenIM probably has potential for scalability.  
Since it's written in Java, the majority of people in the industry will know 
how to hack on it, making it the best choice by your criteria.

Of course, it would depend how the code looks.  I'm going to guess that it's 
reasonably good, but only on the grounds that it isn't C. ;-)
