I've found out that the pep is working with pidgin. If I use psi after  
pidgin, it keeps the status of the last song played. I don't know if the  
im transports, or better, their protocols, are involved in pep too,  
because I've noted that, on pidgin, while icq transport correctly display  
the current song, yahoo doesn't: it seems that yahoo transport is showing  
just the first "staus" and it's not able to change it. Therefore I wonder  
if there's a kind of relationship between im transport and the pep feature  
because I had thought those protocols own to a different level...

Now I'm looking at MPC and supported players
