Yeah, I suppose I could try falling back to that. I don't know why I
haven't tried it already. Just stubborn I guess. See, I just moved from
a Linux server to the FreeBSD server, and I wanted to get things set up
like they were before. But I *did* use aim-t as an icq bridge for a
while, so I guess I can do it again.

For the same reason I don't use Python: I haven't taken the time to sit
down and learn it yet. I don't have anything against Python or Ruby,
it's just that my time is limited, so it's easier to use a language that
I already know than it is to learn a new one.
