Well, I already showed my worries regarding duplication of code and features 
(contact list handling, address book handling), the lack of interoperability 
with existing protocols.

And if Jabber was a completely different solution than Kopete then I could 
think of it as an addition. But Jabber is a subset of Kopete, so Kopete 
offers everything that Jabber offers plus the above advantages (and many more 
when used as a chat client).

It centralizes all code, and that can't be bad.
