This doesn't necessarily give fast disconnection at all. When I'm at work
connected through an SSH tunnel, if the SSH connection drops out, the SSH
client keeps the socket open and it takes quite some time for *any* Jabber
client to notice that it's been disconnected.
Of course, if you meant that the server sends the pings and we disconnect when
they stop coming, that would work. But I don't think we can rely on the
server sending those.
