[JDEV] autoupdate feature

Right now the autoupdate feature is something of a hack (IMHO) and I feel
we need a better framework for autoupdates (e.g., although the current one
works, there is a central point of failure on update.jabber.org),
especially one that doesn't use a hack to the presence element. You could
certainly create your own mini-protocol for this, to be used just by your
own client and server. Or perhaps some other folks here might want to
collaborate on a better protocol and implementation for this...
