You mean JEP-0011? Jeez... they really need to get with the times.

I'm really rusty on the browsing/agents stuff and don't really remember 
how they work... but I wonder if they could be implemented in terms of 
the existing disco support, without requiring any additional 
configuration. I think "Jabber Browsing" uses a similar scheme to the 
"identity" element from disco.

I don't know what spec iq:agents belongs to. That one must have passed 
me by. Do you have a reference?

The list is configured to not munge the Reply-to header, so you have to 
either remember to change the address or use the "Reply to all" command 
instead of just "Reply". (and then trim out all of the addresses except 
the list, naturally.)
