Correct. But the main thing an XMPP class does is maintaining a
connection (which is a resource) to the XMPP server. And If I
understood the thread starter correctly, the idea is to avoid the
connection initialization. I'm doing something similiar right now and
in my case, initalizing the connection to the server takes ~40% of the
whole request time. If I have to do that in every __wakeup() call, I
don't gain anything.
