Well, I would even call that idea less crazy than HTTP-over-XMPP or  
VNC-over-XMPP, as this allows to have something like hamachi where you  
just rightclick and select VPN. And if that's a standard, that would  
work with more than just one client ;). So this might be once again  
something where something proprietary (Hamachi) could be replaced by  
something free using XMPP :).
