As there seems to have been no response yet, can I chip in to say that I 
don't understand the above.  Pidigin is a client, so talks to servers, 
not clients.  It know that they are XMPP capable because the user has 
configured it to say that they are XMPP capable.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
