There are some xmpp branches that want to be merged sooner rather than
later. Specifically the ibb and attention branches (though possibly also
the newer avatar branch).

Richard was concerned about some change or other, but I don't recall what offhand.

We want to check that we still build against GTK+/Glib 2.0.0 (assuming we
intend to stick to that) because I think the theme loader stuff uses some
2.2.0 functions.

Other than the above I think it is likely a good idea to merge and release.

Do we have any real information about whether the problem still exists? Do
we know anything about what the solution actually is (i.e. what is the
deal with these sequence numbers)? Is there any validity to the claims
that this sequence number stuff fixes moving buddies between groups? (If
there is than we should look into it more purely from that perspective.)
