Of course, you need an XMPP server to do anything with XMPP, so I'm entering the maze of twisty-turny passages that is configuring EJabberD to connect to our TurboGears database for authentication. I figure I'll wind up with an external auth script for EJabberD which uses TurboGears command-line configuration to get the DB connection and use the standard friendly-form login table for authentication. Alternately I could go "wrong school" and just use an RPC call into a TG controller to do the auth, or maybe I could just use a "quick and light" XMPP server for the tutorial and let people struggle with EJabberD themselves (naw, that's not helpful).
However, today, before I get on the plane, I want to release PyOpenGL 3.0.1 final, so robust real-time web-apps for TurboGears are going to remain undocumented for now.
