We are not interested in supporting Facebook Chat ourselves.  Facebook has
promised to expose an XMPP interface into the Chat "network", which we are
waiting for.  At that point, we will support Facebook just as we supported
Google Talk immediately upon its release.  Given the promise to expose an XMPP
interface, it's pretty much pointless to go through the effort of supporting the
JSON and HTTP stuff we'd need to.
