Or say if I'm connected to julian at jabber.org/Home and 
julian at jabber.org/Work at the same time. It'd be great if /Work could 
request any queued messages that /Home received. That's something I'm 
planning on implementing whether there's a protocol for it or not (I'd 
just make my own and write a JEP later), but this could probably be 
extended to do what I want... dunno. I'd hate to see this JEP turn into 
"let's do everything" though.
