This could be made a handler for [IJabberClient, IObjectAddedEvent],
and skip the providedBy() test in the handler.

Are you using browser:addform?  There are four different attributes
that can be used to tailor when attributes of the object are set:
arguments, keyword_arguments, set_before_add, and set_after_add.
Fields that are input but not included in any of these are set after
adding the object to it's container.
