That's certainly been my line of thinking - aiming for a solution that 
is easy to deploy and configure, and federates by default. Maybe we can 
script generating the certificates, bundle an xmpp server by default, 
and improve the out-of-the-box configuration such that whatever 
functionality we currently support is easily available.

Towards that goal, I've been playing with Apache Vysper - a small java 
embedded xmpp server built on top of MINA.  It doesn't look too hard to 
integrate, but I'm not sure their server-to-server support is all that 
solid at the moment, so it might not go anywhere.
