Both of you are exactly right.  I didn't quite understand that when I  
first sent the email.  Now, my current plan is to create a perl wrapper  
for libjingle using SWIG.  Once I'm done with that, I'll start my work on  
the project proper; an implementation of FIPA agents for a multiagent  
system.  I'm planning on using a XMPP server to relay the messages between  
various agents as part of the system.  I hope to use this system as a base  
for several bioinformatics tools.  I'm currently a graduate student  
studying bioinformatics (who came from more of a biology standpoint), so  
my understanding of software development is still underwhelming, so thanks  
for the help!
