Note to the implementors: Change some/most of the xml tickers
to not update the "Other Users" list. Ones to change
include private message xml ticker, and XP xml ticker.
If you, for example, don't change chatterbox xml ticker,
then chat clients could allow the user to toggle whether
fetches of that page use the cookie or not: if such fetches
don't use the cookie, then the user won't show unless they
talk; if such fetches do use the cookie, then the user
shows up constantly. Thus /away becomes a client
problem^Wfeature to implement and not a server one.
