Dang, if we could ever somehow get it to where we were backward compatible
with not only IMs but Group Chat as well cross-system....Jabber would become
probobly the most popular system out there.

Heck, I have 50 people just on AIM that I talk to....plus another 30 on
ICQ....I hope one day we get this worked out, because that would definitely
sell it for me.

Also, one more thing - are standard AOL users able to communicate with us as
well via the AIM transport?
