How do other services implement this kind of "poke" feature? I assume in
the UI you can right-click or whatever to choose "poke stpeter" and your
client sends this special message off to me. I think it's less likely
that you'd send a message ("hey pay attention!") with the poke, but
naturally you could do that. If my client didn't know anything about the
poke namespace (or was configured to ignore pokes) then it would simply
ignore that part of the stanza.
