I think it is not necessary to embed a mini jabber server in client.
What we need:
1. Be able to discover Jabber server on a network (thanks to the 
rendez-vous/zeroconf protocol)
2. Create an account and log on this server.
3. Browse chatrooms on the server and discuss both in a chatroom with 
other peoples (or even privatly).

This seems to me the most obvious and simple approach.
