As a user I know and love the behaviour of Gajim: priority depends on
the status (it's only high for available or chat and low for
away/dnd/xa). Combined with the auto-away feature that many other
clients have too will make messages go to the right resource without any
Another great feature is AdHoc commands with two essential nodes:
* Forward unread messages
* Set status or go offline
This is, however, manual intervention.
