I'm doing it in Java right now.  I'm trying to integrate the JabberBeans

I know there may be licensing issues lurking, but I'm being forced this

Glad to hear it :-) And yeah, the XML:DB project is good. I like XUpdate, and making it the focus of many of my projects.

As for authentication: There is currently some various auth methods. I'm not too familiar with the whole auth thing, but i know there is something called "zero-knowledge authentication". I don't know if that is what you are looking for, though. Also, there are efforts to allow PGP/GPG in Jabber using SASL (or is that SAML?). You can find out more by signing up for the Jabber Standards-JIG list []. They are discussing the protocols for this sort of thing now.
