    those of you with a client supporting the jabber protocol (such as gaim) can connect direct without need for a seperate client

    Use GAIM, then you still only need 1 client to connect to 7 networks :)
    saves me having all those crap bloatware clients, but can still communicate with people using the dodgy software!
