Hi Greg,

That's one thing I'm trying to do using Kamaelia and therefore is part of
the Kamaelia's ideas page for GSoC this year.

That being said, a XMPP server is really meaningless if you don't define
how much of XMPP you'd like to support. For a student project, I guess
XMPP-core, XMPP-IM [3] server side would already be a solid project. More
might hurt the success of the project.
