There's a third option, which is to keep with the solution we have
(0048), just updating it to the new pubsub-based system when
I've never been quite sure why we desire to get rid of 0048 in favour
of putting mucs in the roster, because they're not really chat
entities, and have very different semantics. Now, I know many users
would like to be able to do things like minimise to roster (and I
support that too), but that's a client-side thing, not because the
mucs are really stored in the roster.
So I guess the questions I have are:
1) What do we gain from putting mucs in a roster (in protocol) which
we don't already have?
2) What are the problems with 0048 (iq:private notwithstanding)?
