I've actually provided the idea of implementing XMPP-core and a few
necessary extensions (client at first but server too if time allows) with
Kamaelia [1] [2] for GSoC 2008. That could fit your idea of
cross-pollination here Peter. I'm notably interested in XMPP and AtomPub
with potentially a XForms client for good measure. I know there are quite
a few ideas involving Kamaelia and 3D rendering, and having an XMPP client
as a way to control a rendering could be fun.

The code base is actually existing already on my server [3]. If anyone
wants to discuss this, let me know.
