Word is the AIM servers are going to be fixed to not insert the ":80" so 
we should be fine just patching http -> https
Not sure I'll hear when they do it, but it sounded like it would happen 
soon so if anybody wants to check in a day or two, it might work then. 
(I'd do it myself, but I'll be doing a puzzle competetion all weekend)
