  Description     : Transparent Instant Messaging Proxy Server

 timps is an (optionally transparent) proxy server targeted at instant
 messaging networks -- particularly AOL's Instant Messenger. One of the
 more important features is that when multiple users are connected
 through the proxy, messages between those users are kept in the local
 network and not routed across the internet. Multiple proxies can be
 connected together to form trusted networks for secure message routing.
 The proxy can also be used for connecting artificial users, such as
 interactive agents / bots without rate limiting. More generically,
 modules can be written that interact at any stage of message routing,
 creating a flexible system for developing applications with and on IM.
 Since timps speaks the IM protocols natively (ie, it looks like an IM
 server), DNS rerouting or other tricks can be used to invisibly force
 users through the proxy. This is particularly useful for companies
 facing auditing compliance on employee communications (for example,
 Sarbanes-Oxley for financial companies, or normal policy for law
