Exactly. This is what it means in my IRC client (irssi) and what I've
always assumed / treated it as meaning in XMPP. If I join a MUC I want to
stay in until I explicitly leave or close my client. If I leave I want to
stay left until I explicitly join or close my client. After closing and
re-opening my client I want to be in exactly the MUCs in my autojoin list.
If I just wanted to persist what my client had last time it was open, I
wouldn't need bookmarks.
