Been away from email for a few days and just read this thread.  Just a
point that I'd like to share...

Whatever solution gets agreed upon, if it can be implemented outside
of an xmpp server, it would be excellent.  For example, the server has
a proxy in front of it that can be added/removed on a need basis. 
This proxy would possibly re-write the stanzas and add info regarding
sequence numbers/whacks, etc and forward it to the client.  It will
also take care of tracking the whacks/acks etc and return an error
stanza to the server if delivery is assumed failed.

My Rs. 0.02 for now :-)

Regards,
Vinod.
