Auto away

A long standing missing part in Coccinella has been a real auto away feature that takes the system inactivity into account.

Instead I was using any sending of XMPP stanzas as user activity which could lead to much confusion. One advantage of waiting is that someone else gets the idea to implement it, and that was actually what happend since a TIP appeared including patches on Mac OS X, X11, and Windows. Coccinella cvs has now a working real auto away feature.

There is also an interesting blog by JD Conley about setting presence priorities along with show status. However, I found it a bit ad hoc to implement it.
