Well, here's my "thing". I've not got back to the authors, I'm afraid
- whenever I've had the time I've not seen them online, and I've code
freezes and other nightmares.
On PubSub chaining, I think it's okay, although I suspect unsuitable
for real repeaters - I think this model is right for aggregation, but
not terribly interesting for the simple case. I've another design for
shadowing entire services, both MUC and PubSub, that I really need
the time to finish off.
On PubSub queueing, I'm concerned that this is entirely the wrong
model. In particular, I'm wondering what happens when a naïve pubsub
client (or a repeater, like above) subscribed with the default
options, expecting one behaviour and discovering another entirely. I
suspect - but I'm really not sure - that it might need to be an
entirely distinct interface.
