Is Wookie a server-side technology? Otherwise I don't see the link
between both.
Maybe it could be the other way round (Wookie using Vysper), if Wookie
makes use of the XMPP protocol.

Of course, when it comes to implementing Wave, all projects should join efforts.

Here is a short wrap-up of what you need to implement Wave:
+ a Wave client - this is a very fat client, and it's also a XMPP client
+ a server-side "Wave Provider", consisting of
  (a.) Network Server(s)
  (b.) Wave Store
  (c.) Wave Server

In this setup, I'd see (a.) as a XMPP server running the Wave Protocol
(an extension of XMPP), probably tunneling through HTTP[2]. Compared
to implementing XMPP, implementing the Wave protocol extension should
be relatively easy.
The hard and critical part is definitively (c.), with all the
Operational Transformation stuff going on. Google starts open sourcing
this at [1].
