Beyond those two, no flipping idea! However, I've heard people say those
words many times and show how short-sighted they can be. I'm not suggesting
for a client-to-client protocol to be created, but a negotiation system
within Jabber to included within the Jabber protocol. This not only allows
CTCP but also presense announcement which I also believe is nessicary.

I am very interesting in joining the "Core Team."
