Yes, I've successfully run 2 hidden jabber servers (1.4.x), and had
clients connect to them and chat to each other.

For the name resolution problem I chose to work around it by assigning
some special IPs from the link local ranges to my servers in etc/hosts
and mapping them back to the .onion names using tor's MapAddress.  For a
really decentralized system one would of course have to solve that issue
