[ejabberd] Seeing users' genders: implementation opinions?

I was thinking something like vcard for storing the users gender as it  
isn't likely to change often.

Could then store number of male and female contacts as either pubsub  
or pep nodes. One issue though is, if a user changes gender at some  
point then you need to recalculate the number of male and female  
contacts for everyone that has that user on their roster. It might be  
possible to force recalculation at login (during the get roster maybe).
