	Jabber/XMPP should do just fine as a notification system. Your
best bet would be to implement something based on JEP-0060

	If you want to do polling, then just use HTTP. However, if
"notifications" is really what you want, since most notifications are
time-sensitive, you should probably use Jabber PubSub (JEP-0060)
