MAM?  Please parse.

I was talking about:

  <x xmlns='this is my first presence of this session'
     time='this was the last time I was online, and I cached all important

This is a hint to PEP implicit subs that they can take the time, back up
some for clock skew, and only send me things that have changed since.

If it is copied into the presence probes, it can also reduce presence storms
on brief logouts (i.e. for sessions not using -198) as well as optimize
