  Description     : a simple, perl-based ICQ console client

I intend to package vICQ. Actually I'm looking for sponsor and advocate.

vICQ is a perl-based ICQ console client. Almost all ICQ clients in
Linux are written using ICQ UDP Protocol, and with the recent changes at
ICQ servers, these clients became useless because sended and received
messages get lost if you're not using ICQ TCP protocol.

vICQ is the first console client implementing ICQv7 TCP protocol, so you
can send and receive messages without any problems. Its features are:
  * Sending messages
  * Receiving messages
  * Invisible handling
  * Receiving contacts and contacts request
  * Receiving URL messages
  * Receiving offline messages off all types (well, almost all)
  * Receiving auth requests
  * Sending authorization
  * Coloring
  * koi8-r and koi8-u support
  * UIN info obtaining
  * SMS sending
  * Event external hooks
  * Sounds
  * Autocompletion
  * White Pages search
  * White Pages basic info editing
