Well, like I said, I've been trying to do this extension for a year now. 
In that time there have been plenty of drafts that use XEP-135. Every 
draft I made have tradeoffs, so there is no perfect solution.

I really don't mind what shape the extension has, as long as the 
functionality remains the same. If this one gets rejected, I will make 
another one using XEP-135.

Yea, I used glob because I didn't have time to learn the one that the 
xep uses. Do could you provide me with the right regex?
