Hey Piers,

thanks for the info, that got me rolling in the right direction.

Actually I'm trying to set it up as a server for a community site,  
like Facebook.  So what I need now is:
1. letting my existing users authenticate (and that'd be the Authen  
plugin you mentioned)
2. downloading the existing friendlists of my users from my DB and  
showing who's connected and who's not (how to achieve this?)
3. restricting who can message who (any way to monitor each sent  
message and verify if the message should be allowed?)
4. setting up some superuser who can message anyone (but I guess 3.  
will take care of that)
5. anything else you can think of that I'd need?
