That is a truly horrible waste of network bandwidth though,  
completely unnecessarily flooding the network with stanzas each time  
a client logs in. Additionally (and I haven't read the jep yet, it's  
on my todo for today) we need the changes to be pushed between  
resources, not only polled at login.
