That's what I've been thinking. I'm considering writing a QT UI. I'm
not sure I like the idea of a skin-able client, though.. that seems
like an awful lot of memory devoted to such a utilitarian application.

Kopete already exists, but I'm not a big fan of it. Perhaps a QT
implementation of Pidgin could replace it in future versions of KDE.
