I think the "right" thing is to use XEP-0186, but that's seen very  
limited support on the server.

I'm increasingly finding some interesting use-cases for invisibility,  
such as email clients that need to be presence aware - I don't see a  
need for confusing the contacts' roster by showing myself online when  
I'm not, as such.
