Will KDE get you a Jabber account behind your back for its 'internal to KDE' 
stuff? Or will KDE force you to get yourself a Jabber account first before 
you can use this 'internal to KDE' stuff, regardless of whether you already 
have an ICQ or MSN account?

Needless to say I object to both, since we already have code that makes this 
unnecessary. It's not that there's no alternative in this case that we pick a 
solution that's readily available instead of a to-be-developed application. 
Sure, Psi is a bit more mature, but Kopete isn't that far off. And offers a 
whole lot of other options that make it IMSNHO far more usable.

And the fact that those bridges often don't work because the bridging server 
is blocked by another protocol's server, yes.
