Understood. But what features do most people really use? Is it just
presence and IM (and possibly groupchat), or do most people also require
the ability for file transfers, voice calls, emoticons (etc.) to go
across the bridge between Jabber and MSN?

And perhaps those who really do need the complete feature set could step
up to the plate and help fund work on the transports? Not everything
needs to happen through the XSF or the Google Summer of Code.

TANSTAAFL.
