Indeed! It seems to have happened shortly after the discussion at the
aforementioned SF patch ended, and by a disjoint (and disconnected) set
of developers. I tend to forget that keeping an eye on the commit-list
is not enough to know what's happening.

Considering we have the flag we want, can serv_got_attention just set
the flag and the appropriate message, and call serv_got_im? And let's
have a serv_send_attention, which would call serv_send_im with the
appropriate flag and message set, instead of using serv_got_attention
for sending an attention request.
