A lot of the parsing and storing problem already may be solved for you.
Look at either the SKS: The Synchronizing Key Server
(http://sks.sourceforge.net/) or PKS: OpenPGP Public Key Server
(http://pks.sourceforge.net/). The only change would be modifying the
existing sync mechanism from SMTP to Jabber.
The current "keyring" size managed by these is about 4.5GB -- I think
that handles the concern for scaling to arbitrarily large keyrings.
There is also a key-server e-mail list at pgp-keyserver-folk at flame.org.
An empty e-mail to pgp-keyserver-folk-subscribe at flame.org will get you
