I thought one of the big deals in Centos was the ability to configure 
PAM to authenticate anywhere you want and all the apps use the same 
settings?  Isn't that true, or aren't there any jabber/IRC servers that 
are bundled properly into the distribution?

This sounds very much like a distro-centric question to me, even if the 
answer turns out to be that Centos doesn't provide that.
