At most of the places chatting is not allowed, to stop users from doing that 
port numbers are generally blocked. So are we still using port numbers for 
identifying that the traffic belong to specific application (I guess in 
pidgin we are are using port numbers). 

Possible solution to this is use of Dynamic ports. User should not be 
restricted to use a particular port for certain application, the 
identification of packet should be on the basis of certain unique string or 
certain signature which should be present in every packet, not on the basis 
of port which a particular application uses.
