I'm only 1 reviewer out of 8, but this sounds good to me.  I would
recommend being specific as to what you want to fix.  Which protocols?
 Which clients?  Pidgin to Pidgin?  Pidgin to official AIM?  Official
AIM to Pidgin?  When the receiver is behind a home router/firewall NAT
device?  When the sender is behind a home router/firewall NAT device?

If you're able to enumerate the exact failure scenarios then it will
be possible to reproduce the failures and easier to fix them.
