It could definitely be improved.  It could load a little Jabber client in an 
applet which logs into the actual Jabber server to do the authentication, 
then requests a token from the server you want to log into.  The token would 
come back to the applet which could feed it to the real form to log the user 
in.

At least that's as good as it would get until Jabber clients themselves got 
web integration...
