Having the same thing for a server agent/service would be great, too, as
I've discovered over the past week.  There are much fewer examples out there
of XML conversations between service and server then there are between
client and server.

Hi Jens,

Great document! I agree that we need a task-oriented or use-case-driven
document that shows you what XML a Jabber client needs to send and
receive to perform common IM functions. Thanks for putting this

to material in the JPO and JPG but collates it in a sequence that's more
tutorial rather than reference in form. It also clears up some areas
that are left very vague in the official docs (e.g. roster management)
thanks to the helpful answers I got on this mailing list.

like to hear from you. (Definitely on the to-do list: converting the JPO
and JPG references into hyperlinks.)
