Hi Tony
Watching an interesting video at http://www.infoq.com/presentations/Real-Time-Web-with-XMPP about 
XMPP in practice and using the Strophe http://code.stanziq.com/strophe/  js 
and C lib for event driven XMPP handler.
Do you think that all X3D browsers 
could handle the Strophe.js scripts? That would be something 

I am hoping for AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript
 and XML) support

Second I think that zlib could be involved in the 
transport of XMPP packages witch could be used to compact the messages and 
probably do some encryption on them but I'm not at all shure about 
On server / broker side they seem to use ejabberd in 
the presentation mentioned above, if so ejabberd are based in erlang that 
was constructed for telphone connections handling by ericsson and it's very 
fast in handling connections.
Have a question, what form would be 
preferable for floating numerical data to be transport by using f.ex. 
my feeling is models/textures are send by a standard http server (eg: LAMP), XMPP sends DIS-XML


Light travels faster then sound, which is why some people appear bright,
 until you hear them speak
