I don't think there is a distinction. The way XMPP works now is this: if
you are a client and you don't include a 'to' address, the stanza gets
handled by the server on your behalf. So for client-to-server you could
leave off the 'to' address (and obviously the 'from' address). But
that's merely optional. I think for server-to-server you'd include the
'to' addresses. So how many hops the ping applies to depends on what the
'to' is and how far that endpoint is from the sender.

Heh, I was wondering that as well when I wrote it up yesterday. I have
no big preference between set and get here. Probably get makes more sense.
