*laugh*  I was just talking about this.  (like possibly doing it)   
There closest thing has been jjigw, but that's using xmpppy, not  
Twisted.  You might be interested in using the curent Py* transports  
as a base.  I would suggest PyMSNt as I have stripped the "baseproto"  
stuff out of my transports (PyAIMt and PyICQt).  http://msn- 
transport.jabberstudio.org/ if you are interested in checking it  
out.  If you wanted to start from scratch, that's fine too, it's just  
James, author of PyMSN, made it fairly capable of plugging another  
protocol into it's core pieces.

jjigw seems to be very close to doing what I want it to do though.   
(I was originally looking at this because I didn't feel that any of  
the irc transports did what I really wanted. . . that being just be  
capable of logging into an irc server without having to be in an  
actual channel)  I'm not sure jjigw is being developed anymore though.

You may be interested in joining the py-transports at blathersource.org  
mailing list, btw.  See: http://www.modevia.com/cgi-bin/mailman/ 
We'd be happy to include you in our little twisted-based transport  
family.  =)
