The spec was written by a guy at IBM (Barry Leiba). I don't know if MS
was using it before then. From what I've seen, Outlook uses IDLE almost
non-stop and doesn't end it before the server inactivity timeout closes
the connection. Any IDLE client should/must end the IDLE (and probably
restart it) after no more than 29 minutes, to avoid the minimum 30
minute server timeout.
