Hello all,

I have a question that is tangent to Sergey's.

For users that use multiple clients, is there any way to sync the last
N messages that they have received to a given client, where N is some
reasonable number of messages.  Offline messages are great, but I'd
like to have a similar sort of functionality for different resource
ids for one user.
