This is not always true. There are cases
- where people join and leave rooms very often, 
- where they want to have the avatar distributed to anyone, 
- you have the avatar, but you always have to check the digest,

I am not talking about the chat case where you enter a rooom, chat,
leave in the evening. I am talking about 100 joins/leaves per hour.
(They will use their own chat rooms and servers). If you wonder why,
please see http://www.lluna.de/.
