Yes, it seems to have been a marriage of convenience (since they're
also dropping RSS via Google Reader, also cf. the SPDY work to
supersede HTTP, etc.).

On the other hand, not needing to interoperate with Google Talk might
free us to more aggressively work on network security improvements. I
say let's take this as an opportunity rather than a disappointment.
