uhm... I think KDE should focuse in end-user, and end user wants to chat in 
MSN, icq, AOL, and they don't care religious issues. As long the plugins are 
compatible in terms of code license I see no problems.

libpsi is very stable, I don't know if you use Kopete jabber plugin, but I use 
it daily, not feature complete but thats not part of KDE policy. The KDE 
integration can be done slowly, but having it in KDE would promote jabber 
usage more.

I agree.... libpsi is not a name that makes sense
