Hi folks,

Some IM clients (eg. ICQ) has an "Invisible" mode, that the server will not
notify others of your presence (unless you initiate a conversation of
>From my interpretation of the docs it seems that the server / protocol does
not provide such facility.  Am I right?

The only way to do it that I know of, is to send a
"<presence type=unavailable to='X'/>" (for X in each (@roster)).

I am in no position to say that "users should be honest about their
presence", and have resorted to using that feature sometimes (due to obvious
reasons).  So I think such a facility will definitely help Jabber become
more friendly / attractive.
