Comment(by Ecnassianer):

 Toward the justification of this patch:

 GTalk works in a specific way that people expect (Shared Statuses instead
 of the multi-status model of vanilla jabber), so even if the model is ugly
 from the dev/RFC perspective, a change is behavior is uglier from the
 user's perspective.

 My uninformed guess based on which services offer jabber makes me think
 that there are significantly more people using gtalk than ''all other
 jabber servers combined'', so it makes sense to me that gtalk's tweaked
 version of jabber might deserve some special treatment.

 @deryni: Buzz doesn't get updated in Pigin 2.6.6, and no Shared Status
 support is the only clue I could find toward that end. If I update my
 gmail chat status manually, Buzz gets updated, if I update my Pidgin
 status, neither gmail nor Buzz get's updated. I could be wrong, but it
 sounds related. Either way, I'm still pro-shared status.
