Pidgin implements the listed JEP. We query for new mail at login and, after
that, we listen for the <iq type='set'><new mail xmlns='google:mail:notify'
/></iq> notification and then query the server (same syntax as at login).

It works for me with my account, but another Pidgin developer was not
receiving the notifications from the server on his account, so there seem
to be issues outside clients' control.
