Idea: xmpp bot for status updates

Hi there,
I'm new to python (coding in general) and wanted to start by doing a xmpp plugin for octoprint. The plugin should be able to join a MUC, listen to some commands and be able to respond with information about the current print and send a picture.
I found slixmpp as a xmpp library (I chose it because it supports some XEPs I might need). It's a library for python 3 so my question is if it still usable since octoprint is still on python2?

If you're a patient person, you should consider researching your ideas and piecing together the work that you'll need to do. From what I understand from the blog, foosel's getting Python3 support into the next full rev.
