Presence information for rooms of people persisted in crdt

var Document = require("crdt")
var presence = require("presence")
 
// todo document this 
var room = RoomStruct(...)
var doc = Document()
 
var rooms = presence(doc, room)
 
fold(rooms, function (room) {
    console.log("room.host", room.host, room.id)
 
    fold(room.people, function (person) {
        // "add" or "remove" 
        console.log("person.eventType", person.eventType)
 
        console.log("person", person, person.id)
    })
})

There are two types of rows that will be added to crdt for the sake of maintaing presence information, the first is the room

{
    id: "presence~room~" + (room.id || uuid())
    , host: room.host || {}
    , type: "presence~room"
    , ts: Date.now()
}

and the second is for the people

{
    id: "presence~person~" + person.id
    , roomId: room.id
    , online: Boolean
    , ts: Date
    /* other properties that are on person objects */
    , type: "presence~person"
}

The contract for room input is that it's an object with a host property and a people reducible representing a stream of people data.

The contract for people is that they look like

{
    id: "some id"
    , ts: Date
    , online: Boolean
}

It's your job to have a stream of people data, the online flag is used to indicate whether someone is online. the id is used for identity and ts is used by cleanse to cleanse any people who havn't updated their ts recently (i.e. heartbeating)
