And when this happens, the callback is also removed? I think I've seen that in the logs.

So, session/ at timeout = 0 keeps the client side from timing out.

What does the callback/ at retries do? 

I note that neither of these can be set by the current pyBlaster login call, though that's easy 
enough to fix.

I understand. Thanks for the clarification. 

One suggestion.. As a new user who had to get xmlBlaster up and running quickly, I found it 
rather frustrating trying to find all the possible sub-elements  of QoS.

They're rather scattered about, I suppose where the belong, but it would be very helpful to 
also have a list that describes all possible QoS sub-elements and their meanings.

I've put together a number of Python utility modules for Key and QoS generation, and I 
wanted them to be rather generalized (when possible). It took a while to find what I thought 
were all the possible QoS sub-elements, but you've just told me some more!
