AFAIK, using custom element in the message should be OK: http://xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc6120.html#stanzas-extended

Regarding the modification of mod_archive_odbc: as long as it works, it should be fine ;-) Alternatively, as I said  before, you might consider using 'message' storage type with mod_archive2, then you should have the whole message stored with your custom payload, which has an advantage (?) that this payload is also returned on all message retrieval operations.

I just pushed current version to https://github.com/ndl/mod_archive2 - feel free to play with it and contact me via e-mail if you need further info and / or submit bugs via github.


Good luck!                                     Alexander
