       AnyEvent::XMPP::Ext::Ping - Implementation of XMPP Ping XEP-0199

	  use AnyEvent::XMPP::Ext::Ping;

	  my $con = AnyEvent::XMPP::IM::Connection->new	(...);
	  $con->add_extension (my $ping	= AnyEvent::XMPP::Ext::Ping->new);

	  # this enables auto-timeout of a connection if it didn't answer
	  # within 120 seconds to a ping with a	reply
	  $ping->enable_timeout	($con, 120);

	  my $cl = AnyEvent::XMPP::Client->new (...);
	  $cl->add_extension (my $ping = AnyEvent::XMPP::Ext::Ping->new);

	  # this enables auto-timeout of newly created connections
	  $ping->auto_timeout (120);

	  $ping->ping ($con, 'ping_dest@server.tld', sub {
	     my	($time,	$error)	= @_;
	     if	($error) {
		# we got an error
	     # $time is	a float	(seconds) of the rtt if	you got	Time::HiRes

       This extension implements XEP-0199: XMPP	Ping.  It allows you to	define
       a automatic ping	timeouter that will disconnect dead connections	(which
       didn't reply to a ping after N seconds).	See also the documentation of
       the "enable_timeout" method below.

       It also allows you to send pings	to any XMPP entity you like and	will
       measure the time	it took	if you got Time::HiRes.

       new (%args)
	   Creates a new ping handle.

       auto_timeout ($timeout)
	   This	method enables automatic connection timeout of new
	   connections.	It calls "enable_timeout" (see below) for every	new
	   connection that was connected and emitted a "stream_ready" event.

	   This	is useful if you want connections that have this extension
	   automatically timeouted. In particular this is useful with modules
	   like	AnyEvent::XMPP::Client (see also SYNOPSIS above).

       enable_timeout ($con, $timeout)
	   This	enables	a periodical ping on the connection $con.  $timeout
	   must	be the seconds that the	ping intervals last.

	   If the server which is connected via	$con didn't respond within
	   $timeout seconds the	connection $con	will be	disconnected.

	   Please note that there already is a basic timeout mechanism for
	   dead	TCP connections	in AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection, see also	the
	   "whitespace_ping_interval" configuration variable for a connection
	   there. It then will depend on TCP timeouts to disconnect the

	   Use "enable_timeout"	and "auto_timeout" only	if you really feel
	   like	you need an explicit timeout for your connections.

       ping ($con, $dest, $cb, $timeout)
	   This	method sends a ping request to $dest via the
	   AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection in $con. If $dest	is undefined the ping
	   will	be sent	to the connected server.  $cb will be called when
	   either the ping timeouts, an	error occurs or	the ping result	was
	   received. $timeout is an optional timeout for the ping request, if
	   $timeout is not given the default IQ	timeout	for the	connection is
	   the relevant	timeout.

	   The first argument to $cb will be the seconds of the	round trip
	   time	for that request (If you have Time::HiRes).  If	you don't have
	   Time::HiRes installed the first argument will be undef.

	   The second argument to $cb will be either undef if no error occured
	   or a	AnyEvent::XMPP::Error::IQ error	object.

       ignore_pings ($bool)
	   This	method is mostly for testing, it tells this extension to
	   ignore all ping requests and	will prevent any response from being
