Hello Magnus,

The patch is better than the previous one. I am not sure however that 
the message are not send when you are online. The part of the code that 
you modified only seem to relate to the question of what to do with 
messages on presence change. I think that the place where messages are 
routed outside the contexte of presence changes does not handle the case 
of negative priority.
I did not test your patch however, and will probably look further at it 

Another question however: the feature of not receiving the messages when 
I do not want to is usefull but I wonder how this relate to Jabber 
privacy features.
I agree however that negative priority are in the specs, but I was 
wondering if privacy lists where not serving the same purpose as 
negative priority. I really do not know.

Thank you !
