I'd be curious to know how many of the presence stanzas are such that
the proposal would help. In other words, how many are remote users
with multiple friends on your server?
I ask because I get a considerable number of presence stanzas - far
more than messages - over my client link. Maybe it's because I have
no friends, and nobody talks to me, but I suspect it's the constant
