Considering Hal is involved with Psi, he is probably talking about Iris, the 
XMPP library that Psi uses:

While at the moment the library is mainly just usable for clients, it does 
have some groundwork for server stuff.  There are client/server demos in CVS, 
and in the future these could be useful for compliance testing.

No formal release or promotion of Iris has been made yet, as I don't think it 
is ready for that.  There's a lot I still need/want to do.  Maybe in 6 
months. :)
