Correct. My notes on the bug are probably unreadable -- it was late
last night, apologies.

What I mean to say is that we could

1 - explore the interaction between sleep timeouts and Salut resync
frequency for presence

2 - hack the Tubes/Telepathy stack to _prevent sleep_ while an actual
collaboration session is running

I think #1 needs to be done regardless, as it'll improve behaviour
even if/when we our networking/suspend issues sorted. And some of the
issues in network/suspend interaction won't be easy to resolve.
