If you want to play with Perl and Jabber I suggest looking at POE
(http://poe.perl.org/) 'POE is a framework for creating multitasking
programs in Perl.' - along the same lines as twisted for python.

I started work on this a while back before I found twisted/Beyond
(http://www.asbahr.com/beyond.html) and I'd be happy for someone to
finish what I started with the POE::Component::Jabber (just the core
stuff is in place, I never got the chance to finish it - RL struck).
