Never heard of ivy bus. And i was referring to JDNS as a library to implement
Zeroconf chatting in. JDNS implements mDNS, which is what zeroconf uses.
The plan is to use JDNS in Psi in the near future. After that, Psi can
be extended to implement Zeroconf chatting.

Not really. The only difference is that the user will have some features
unavailable (server config, add to roster, ...). Apart from that, it's the 
same from the user's point of view: contacts come online in your contact
list, you open chats with them, send files to them, do groupchats with 
them, ...
