I really don't like bumping, but as this is a privacy-sensitive matter,
I think we really need to do it here.

And while we are at it, I'd also love to introduce some more changes
regarding MUC-PMs, namely how clients and servers should handle them.
has the details, but the TL;DR is:

- servers/MUC services must tag all MUC-related messages
- clients must tag outgoing MUC-PMs as such
- clients must ignore carbons of MUC-PMs from channels they are not
  joined to
- servers must send Carbons for a specific subset of MUC-related
  messages (invitations, 'sent' PMs, not 'received' PMs)
