Good idea.

But actually, developing something like this once for every type of connection 
you want (one for databases, one for Jabber, one for...) seems silly.  
Doesn't PHP have some kind of framework for doing this sort of thing in 
general?  Other languages were there years ago... I found a way to do this 
sort of thing with mod_perl, and Java had it since first inception. :-/

In any case, if such a thing doesn't exist, writing it would definitely help 
the existing Jabber libs improve the way they work, even if the project 
itself weren't Jabber-related.
