   i am writing a component from scratch, so perhaps you could use
(well, not acctually use, since you may not want to use C, but get a
hint on how to start with ) some of my C code ( very, very very new
and very, very, very unstable )
 that will do a lot of components things like
   1) parse xml ( using expat )
   2) calculate a SHA1 to log in the server
   3) do all the boring thing about components
   4) handle an independent SQL connection for storage


   this a very new project, under furious development. If you are
interested in writing a component, perhaps we could exchange some
ideias and problems.

    By the way, jdevs, I am starting to write a social component to
put in a jabber network a social network ( like orkut.com,
friends.com,etc ). It is a SOC proposal that is becoming real now ...
comments ?

    cya, mel
