Well message will be the most part where we get the <gone/> error back.

You will never get this (as long as you do not just send directed 
presence.) The "error" that is returned to a subscription request is not 
<presence type='error'/> but <presence type='unsubscribed'/>.

But there we have a new problem: Unsubscribing does not contain an error 

So we may have to define it differently. But still I think redirecting 
is the correct way to go. Everything else will cause to much damage on 
protocols that have JIDs inside the stanza.

BTW: May I contact you directly when I have problems with the trillian 
client the next time? Whenever I contacted ceruleanstudios with error 
reports I never got a reply back.
