I added a "multisession" parameter, defined as "Whether to allow
multiple simultaneous sessions between the full JIDs of the parties".

In XSD, boolean variables default to false, so multisession would not be
enabled unless explicitly chosen. This is why I made it "multisession"
instead of "singlesession" (since I think in general the desired
behavior is to not have multiple sessions).
