If the presence subscription request comes from a gmail account, mutual
presence subscription is still impossible because the google xmpp server
still rejects any presence of type='subscribe' with a
service-unavailable error, which as stated above, is even sent on the
wrong stream. Of course, that doesn't leave much choice but editing the
roster directly to see the gmail account status...
Perhaps if you guys want to employ limitations at least do it
accordingly and possibly in a way that <<speaks proper xmpp>> and
doesn't violate rfcs.
