It would be good to analyze the relative percentage of presence to
messages. My sense from watching the XML console in Psi is that most of
the "noise" is presence.

In general I think it might be difficult to determine which stanzas are
worth waking up for (some messages might just be PEP notifications), but
ignoring presence seems like a good start.
