The iqs are bare JID instead of full JID.

Why not use type='error' for error stanzas?

Why not send iq responses after processing, instead of before?

Should times use 82?

I'm not entirely sure that I understand the translation stuff. Isn't
this equivalent to using strings in e.g. English, and then having a
translation map?

I think multicast is probably misleading here as what it's likely to
be doing is really a multi-singlcast type of thing.

No objections to it going to Experimental, in any case.

I'm going to not object at the moment to it going to Experimental,
although I do still have reservations about it.

I'd quite like to know how EXI in this case compares to zlib (It looks
rather like zlib should cope pretty well with these data).
