Our use case is the following. With have heterogeneous apps (Windows based, 
Python based) that need to talk to each other. A Python/Zope app might 
provide an address book service that is used by some Windows application. 
The idea is to use XMPP as communication bus. The apps would register with 
a XMPP server and communicate through XMPP. Since almost all services are 
implemented on the Zope side it would make sense to integrate the XMPP
into Zope. The newest version of Zope can integrate Twisted as server 
(replacing ZServer). So the basic question (before performing implemenation
or deeper evaluation work) is: how  usable is the XMPP stuff in Twisted to 
be used as server component. I know that most Python XMPP solutions are 
client-side solutions and there is almost no stable XMPP server solution 
available for Zope. Is Twised(Words) the right road in this case?
