Comment (by deryni):

 That book is old and out of date, both the current XMPP rfc
 (http://www.xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc3921.html) and the bis draft of the rfc
 #presence-priority) indicate a range of -128 to 127.

 I still maintain that doing a poor attempt at priority setting isn't worth
 it and that a correct implementation is complicated, and that furthermore
 clients that use 'high' priorities for unavailable statuses should
 probably be changed. I would be more than happy for someone to take a poll
 of the default priorities for the available and away statuses among the
 majority of the XMPP clients that exist and report back, if there is a
 clear pattern then I would see no reason not to change pidgin to match
