Getting jabber:iq:last with xmpppy

    I'm trying to do the following with the xmpppy library:
    - log on to the google jabber server
    - get idle time of one specific person on my roster.

    Idle time means the values of jabber:iq:last.

    When I do this in pidgin with the xmpp console open, I get the
    following conversation:

    <iq type='get' id='purpleb22cf798' to='/
    <query xmlns='jabber:iq:last'/>

    (other person)
    <iq type='result' id='purpleb22cf798' to='/
    GaimA9B7F02F' from='/Gaim2AD95550'>
    <query xmlns='jabber:iq:last' seconds='126517'/>

    Now, I'd like to do the same in python.
    I'm logged in to the server with the following code.

    import xmpp
    login = 'georgeencina' #
    pwd = 'secret'
    cnx = xmpp.Client('')
    cnx.connect( server=('',5223) )
    cnx.auth(login,pwd, 'idlewatcher')

    What would be the next step? I saw there is an xmpp.Iq class, which I
    suppose is what I need to work with to construct the message I
    observed in Pidgin.

    Does anyone have some quick lines of code on how to construct and send
    the message, and how to receive the response?
