Comment (by deryni):

 The hacky plugin attached to this ticket does exactly that sort of
 workaround. The comment (and email) by xnyhps indicates a workaround that
 leaves the security change intact but attempts to be maximally compatible.

 It is a shame that, pidgin included, so few clients were checking this
 stuff correctly in the past and that servers got away with being broken
 for so long but fixing them is always better than working around them.
 Especially working around breakage as extensive as that which facebook

 That being said if xnyhps's suggestion is considered reasonably and secure
 it is likely that it will be implemented to cover these cases.
