You mean registering using PyXMPP, or server using PyXMPP? I don't think
the latter would work (server support of PyXMPP is very poor).

Server from pyxmpp example directory?

Do not use Stream classes directly.

Recent PyXMPP code supports basic registration for clients. You will probably need
the PyXMPP from SVN or current snapshot for that.

To register a new account use connect() method of JabberClient class
with the "register" (first and only) argument set to True.

Override process_registration_form() method to handle the registration
form and enter the required data. The default implementation will just
pass username and password (as they would be used for authentication) in
the registration form.

Unfortunately not.
