I wouldn't. We talked a lot to get 237 to the place where it is now.  
In the process I *believe* we discussed using 0059.

I find 0237 elegant and simple to implement on most servers.

Before starting 0237 all over again, I was hoping to hear from server  
implementors about this.

I understand the desire of having solutions that work likes tools,  
that we can reuse on several places. But  just because it looks like  
a nail, we shouldn't just get the hammer.

For example, rosters have this property where a single "age" flag can  
be used to send the roster delta with little effort on the server  
(assuming a SQL-style backend). Do we sacrifice that just to use a  
standard "tool"?

Its not clear to me.
