What I don't see is any mechanism for positive confirmation that an
account *has* connected.
In regard to automatic reconnection, I would expect that reconnection
attempts aren't done particularly frequently to avoid excessive load.
But if you're debugging the problem, and you have just tweaked the
server or just started a protocol sniffer, it's Really Pleasant to be
able to force a new connection attempt, rather than waiting for an
automatic reconnection timer of unknown length to time out.
(We've seen this quite a bit with SIP phones -- The ones that do not
have a way to force re-registrations are a lot less easy to set up and
Automatic mechanisms are great 99% of the time. But there are times you
need to lift the hood and see what is really going on, and to override
the automatic behavior.
