If the gateway supported direct ICQ connections, the need for internal
shortcuts wouldn't even arise, so I'd suggest adding this functionality

"Shortcuts" are also bad from a political point of view. I'd rather like
gateways to send "You're talking to a person that actually uses Jabber,
please use Jabber instead" ;-) than providing support for this strange
behaviour. Otherwise, the Jabber network once again tries to compete with
multi-network IM clients.
