[jdev] Tracking threads/message replies

Hey all,

It's been awhile since I've done any XMPP based stuff and just trying to
track down how to track threaded messages,

The last time I was actively doing some XMPP code I (vaguely) recall an "in
reply to" style attribute on the <message/> element being around, which
seems to have been replaced with <thread/> elements or "In-Reply-To" header

However I'm not seeing many clients actually supporting either of these
(actually, I've only tried Adium and GizmoProjects new mobile client), Spark
from Jive seems to handle the <thread> fine.

For the bit of code I'm working on I need some way to track a reply back to
the originating message and it seems I can't reliably do that :(

Or am I just over looking something?
