Comment(by dlenski):

 @Ecnassianer, very well-put.  +1 on user expectations.

 I too would guess that GTalk constitutes the vast majority of XMPP users,
 based on the fact that no one besides FLOSS developers have ever given me
 a non-GTalk XMPP address :)  That might be changing
 [http://www.facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php now that Facebook Chat offers
 an XMPP interface], but it's a good point.

 As for Google Buzz: I don't normally use it, but I tried it out and I can
 confirm that Shared Status is required for Gtalk->Buzz updates.  With
 ayanc's patch, changing Google Talk status in Pidgin will update Buzz.
 Try [https://launchpad.net/~lenski/+archive/pidgin-gss my Pidgin 2.6.6
 +GSS-patch builds] if you're running Ubuntu.
