What I just did was just a prototype. If you're familiar with libfaim,
please, yes, feel free to write up a real AIM transport using it :)

I wont check in any of the code I wrote specifically for the AIM transport
then, since it sounds like you can write something up that will really
work and mine was only for testing purposes, and the test passed. But I
think I AM going to go ahead and check in the patches to rename pair to
jpair in case anyone wants to use the libs in C++.

It's already setup, I've been doing most of the development thusfar using
it.  I can't say I'm all that great with it yet since it's the first time
I've ever used it.

I'd be happy to set up new repositories for every client if needed.  I
have to figure out how to handle the permissions part first though :)
