Oh, this is so depressing .... what's the deal with those XMPP guys?

Every damn <iq> packet contains a <query> element so you can just read its xmlns attribute to see what to do it. But no, for pings it has to use a special <ping> tag. DRUGS ARE BAD, MMMKAY?

But thanks for the patch. I know you didn't invent the standard. ;-) Which clients send this kind of requests so far and why? Haven't heard of this before...

So far, no client or server send it. I have seen some server (jabberd14, or ejabberd, i am not sure) that send new line to keep connection alive, or to check the client is still here, but that not really good.

I proposed the patch because no one will use the xep if no client support it ( chicken and egg problem ).
