Some protocols can have multiple statuses at the same time. I.e. "hacking on
Gabble", "listening to Iron Maiden".
I'm not really sure that we can map Jabber resources to this structure sanely;
it doesn't help that I can't keep the structure clearly in my head, or that
I'm not sure what a "status identifier" is. I can only imagine that it would
be one of the CONNECTION_PRESENCE_TYPE_* constants.
