a) embedding into KDE (connections with KAddressBook, KMail, etc.) -- I can
understand that somebody dislikes kopete just because of that, but not me.
Cool 100% Jabber KDE client would be nice, but there isn't such thing (yes,
I know about psi).
b) IRC over Jabber (irc.netlab.cz among many others) kind of stinks -- you
can use it if necessary, but even kopete client is much better than that.

I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it.
