[ejabberd] Altering message body in a module

You'll have to construct the appropriate tuple representing your new
message stanza yourself. If it's just the content of the body you want to
set, and you don't need any additional elements, then a simple:

{xmlelement, "message", OrigAttrs, [{xmlelement, "body", [], [{xmlcdata,

ought to work. This is assuming you kept the attributes for the original
message in a variable.
