I'd agree with coolo on this one. Users (e.g me) will be pretty 
annoyed to not have access to Yahoo/MSN/ICQ (the most frequently 
used ones, seems like a roughly equal split from my group of 
friends in any case). So, the only thing KDE can really do is make 
a policy that says that Jabber (or any other open protocol???) 
should be the "choice" protocol, i.e, put it top in the plugin list :)

But then, after George's comment i'd not like really to see libpsi
to go in unless the security stuff was disabled. And i'd much prefer
a KDE solution to the protocol anyways, though I understand the 
reason behind its reuse...
