We actually created a google talk and livejournal account in Adium,  
out of anticipation of support requests. Before we did this, we had a  
ton of problems with folks setting up accounts, even those who  
followed the very explicit instructions on the google howto pages.  
Afterwards, the only issues I've seen are from people who use google  
for domains, which we defer to the actual jabber account itself.

I'd say that if you guys are having so many problems that you are  
even discussing removing a ui on one platform to reduce them, that  
doing something as simple as this is a no brainer.
