Ummm... why cant they communicate?  How will jabber solve this?

I think your confused.  Kopete will let you communcate with other protocols 
open and closed.  The reason why this is more favorable is that we can expand 
kopetes system with much more freedom.  Add to that the fact that Kopete is 
being designed with the idea of being a gateway for messageing and it becomes 
very attractive.  With Kopetes dcop interface exposeing the messageing 
internals things like Messageing someone a vcard appointment or rightclick to 
send a file to someone genericly becomes quite feasable.

While psi might have a good design, the fact that its locked into one protocol 
is kind of limiting.  Kopete offers tighter integration with other messageing
