I'd be interested in seeing these patches, regardless of if the get
applied to trunk.

One aspect of the current design which I find slightly lacking is that
if a presence request is made to a bot, and for whatever reason it
doesn't respond to it immediately (it gets lost, the server gets shut
down, what have you) the bot never notices the pending request later.
It sounds like the infrastructure you've worked so far might be helpful
in resolving this bug.
