I tried to make rejoining work with Write, but ran into bugs into both
the PS and Telepathy Gabble.

For the PS bug, tomeu has a patch but it never went in.

The Telepathy gabble bug prevented you from rejoining an existing tube,
so it could never have worked for any application (including chat).

The Telepathy gabble bug is fixed in F11 and F12, but I did not test if
Write rejoining now works (it could still have bugs, simply because I
could never test it).
