a) AIM (OSCAR/TIKTOK) isn't going to be around much longer.

b) That's kinda a broad promise. You cannot force the GUI Jabber client
writers to place a link.

c) I know for a fact that the current availablilty of "free" connections to
the AOL IM network is not loved. Try contacting corporate, but you're going
to have a bit of a problem convincing any of the VPs (which are whom you'll be
talking) to go along.
