This seems like the easiest, and most rewarding way to make a proof of 
concept of RendezVous in Jabber: have a little daemon that runs on 
localhost, and accepts Jabber connections from localhost. On the 
network side, the client talks RendezVous, and adds and removes 
contacts to the roster as clients come and go. Such a daemon would 
allow any Jabber client to be able to do RendezVous chatting. This 
daemon is probably very similar to a normal jabber server, only without 
the persistent aspects and other stuff.

Some kind of standard on these things would be nice, though.
