After a lot more work than I ever imagined, I've now got a pre-alpha very
hacky version of the Gaim Transport running on gw.vgsmail.com.  

Currently limitations:

1) It might fall-over at any point: I'm going to monitor it, so if it SEGVs
I'll have to restart it;

2) Limitations:

     i) currently subscriptions will not be passed through to the legacy
network, so only your CURRENT buddies can be added to your Roster;

     ii) there is no way of neatly unregistering;

     iii) I am currently only running a single instance of the gateway and
so subscriptions will be for the MSN network only.  If you'd like to add a
Yahoo account (tested relatively thorougly) or an AIM/ICQ account (tested
very briefly) account, please email me directly;

     iv) Some of the presence translations might be a bit funny(i.e. 'away'
on AIM appears as 'dnd' on Jabber);

     v) If a login fails more than 3 times the account will be disabled (to
re-enable it, just register again).

I wonder if we should move this discussion (and the inevitable bug reports)
