I wrote a basic jabber with basic MUC support. I made it so that the 
first presence received from a muc room is the one telling it which nick 
is his.

For example, upon receiving :
<presence from='room at conference.server/mynick'>
	<x xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#user'>
		<item whatever/>

the client sees it isn't already in that room, and enters it with 'mynick'.

The idea was that the presence sent by the client to enter a room was a 
request, and the presence sent by the server to enter the room was the 

I thought it could fly ; was I wrong ?
