Api call to update vcard #337

We have a Backbone application that also runs converse.js on top of it. Both works simultaneously brilliant.
In our application users can change their avatar as well as name and we would like to be able to change, at the same, change the vcard information in converse.js.

The information is in sessionStorage and we would not like to clear the whole converse.js entries as well as not scrapping and chasing around among the stored information.

Would it be considered as a new enhancement with this feature? maybe a new api call to retrieve again the new vcard information in db for a given jid?

Many thanks!
