May I ask that someone specify pubsub/pep use within this JEP?   
Section 4.5 mentions that pubsub/pep ought to be used, BUT it doesn't  
provide any examples or real information regarding it's use.  I  
basically "made something up" for the moment which may or may not be  
good.  =)  (I'm trying to implement all of this with PyICQ/PyAIM)   
Anyway, basically I stored this:

<items node="http://jabber.org/protocol/nick">
       <item id="current">
         <nick xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/nick">Jadestorm</nick>

Seemed reasonable enough.  Might be stupid, might not.  =D  Either  
way, if pubsub/pep is going to be suggested in the JEP, I'd love to  
see an example of storing it in pubsub/pep listed.  (or is this  
implied somewhere that I'm not seeing?)
