Instead of creating (yet another) full XMPP server, how about creating
something like a standalone MUC component. This requires implementing
a part of an XMPP server, but certainly not everything from core and
IM. I have had a situation where I would have really liked to set up a
MUC conference server without running the full blown server.

Or maybe, to have something more general, something that can take any
component (like a transport, ...), and serve it standalone. I haven't
given this much thought whether this technically makes sense or  is
possible at all, but from a user's perspective I think it would (cfr
the MUC case).

cheers,
Remko
