Jabber is a particularly good choice if you are really looking to use it
in a *program*, i.e., programs shipping data around to other programs,
because it is the only IM protocol (AFAIK) that actually was built with
that in mind, with traditional IM being layered on top of that.

I don't know how easy it is to start with PyJabber and learn from scratch,
as I've worked with Jabber too much to have a fresh perspective. Shouldn't
be too hard, though.
