Could you give some examples of that last statement ?
Btw.  Jabber has some nice features too.  The fact that it's XML
and open allows you to send special messages that aren't strictly
"messages" as in chit-chat.  If you want to do that over something
like ICQ, you have to invent something like MIME for IM which allows
you to encapsulates different types of messages.  Of course, there's
not much hope that MS or AOL would adopt KDE's extensions, so you're
doing non-standard stuff and no longer interoperable..
Or am i missing something here ?

Don't the Kopete plugins suffer from those practices too ?
