Globally, I like the change that has been made.

Anyway, there is a big issue :  It require client support.
I want the automatic archiving be working on every client, and the client must 
not require to do anything.
(one rules one teach me is : put the complexity on the server, not the client)

So there are two issues:
- The client shouldn't need to send the <auto/> to enable automatic archiving
- The usage JEP-0155 is basically a client-to-client protocol which will not 
work well for OTR in automatic archiving.

I have also some issues regarding the encryption : 
 - Would it be fine if the user just specify a passphrase to access the 
history, and all encryption and decryption mechanism are done into the 
server ? (simple client/complex server)
 - Else, how are the secrets keys shared between clients ?
