Nudge sending restriction considering contact client version ...

Hello there!

I've noticed yesterday that Microsoft's MSN doesn't send's a nudge 
command to clients that don't support it. And provide the user with a 
explanatory message that inform him of this impossibility.
I tried with Pidgin, and the message is sent without any alarm giving 
the user an impression that his contact has successfully received the 

Further analysis with Ethereal showed me that MSN doesn't even send 
anything through the net on such condition, so I went to site 
"" looking for a primitive that could 
give to a MSN client the needed information to take such decision.
I suppose the primitive is the ILN one, that informs among other things 
the client id number.

Anyway, what I want to know is whether is there any effort on the way to 
make this final improvement on nudge sending. Which I think will let the 
feature - nudge sending and receiving - fully implemented.
Or whether is there any intention by now of doing this some day...
