Yep, I have it working, using:

my $muc = DJabberd::Plugin::MUC->new;

and then including that in the plugins attribute of the vhost constructor.

If you haven't already seen it, check out the sixapart sample server
code - that gives some pretty good hints on how to get this working.

Just remember to either add conference.hostname to your DNS - or to
hack the srv lookup in - this was quickest for me, since I
still don't understand half of the code I'm ripping apart ;-)

Starting at line 40...

    my $real_hostname = $hostname;
    $real_hostname =~ s/conference\.//;

    # testing support
    if ($service eq "_xmpp-server._tcp") {
        my $endpt = DJabberd->fake_s2s_peer($hostname);
        if ($endpt) {

    my $pkt = Net::DNS::Packet->new("$service.$real_hostname", "SRV", "IN");

I'm sure there's a better way of doing DNS lookups for services
generically, but this my hack fix for the amount of time I could spend
on it.
