[jadmin] aim-transport problems

I don't know whether this is old new or not, but http://www.slashdot.org has
a piece about this:

Cassivs writes: "The GAIM developers have posted an excellent document on
the recent battles with AOL. It seems that upon receiving an OSCAR
connection, the server requests an md5sum of some section of the aim.exe
file. And recently, AOL has begun changing the section whose md5sum they
request. This was always supported in the official clients, but never
actually used until now, so they don't break the official clients. Quite a
clever solution. Embedding aim.exe into the libfaim source has potential
legal problems. Is this the end of the open-source AIM clones being able to
use OSCAR?"

Seems like AIM might be doing something new again, we're looking into it.
