I need to coordinate updates of loosely coupled, highly
distributed hosts. I want to send messages to all the hosts
then have them delivered, eventually, even if a host was
down. Are there existing examples of using Jabber for this
sort of thing?
This application is actually a free public DNS system. The
original infrastructure was written years ago with tightly
integrated hosts and modest growth in mind. The next
generation infrastructure needs to support donated hosts
with variable reliability and limited connectivity.

That's good to know. I can use RPC for status checks. For
updates I'll need to switch to augmented <message/>s.
