Heck, we're still working to get all those working well in Jabber. :)

We work on Jabber here, not closed technologies.

There *are* multi-protocol clients like Pidgin that support Jabber and
closed technologies like MSN, Yahoo, and ICQ. But I don't know if they 
do text, voice, video, and file transfer for MSN, Yahoo, and ICQ. Each 
one of those closed silos does things in a different way.
