Guys, think about what you're saying.  You're saying "_I_ don't want AOL
logos on my client.  _I_ don't mind waiting."  It's the developers who
make those decisions.  Think about whether you're going to be the same
guys who complain because it's taking too long to implement a new feature.
I'm not saying you will be, but just think about it.

I think it's a good idea to cooperate with AOL.  From what I've seen of
existing open-source protocol libraries, the understanding of AIM's
protocol is not perfect.  Keeping in step with their client would be neat,
to boot.

I can't say that I agree with the logo idea right now, although I'm sure a
fairly unobtrusive place for it can be found, and at that point, it should
go before the 'Jabber community'.
