I had a phone call with Karen from today, and she
confirmed that the licensing attached to the OpenAIM stuff is not
GPL-compatible, and it's best to leave it ignored. We also talked
about, and whether that could apply to MSN, and
she said that after was formed, Microsoft
publically released their documentation for everything covered by it,
mostly obsoleting protocolfreedom.  She said she thought MSN messenger
might be covered and pointed me at

I haven't looked at it yet, but I suspect they may have released docs
for whatever their internal SIP-like thing is called, but not MSN
Messenger (or whatever MSN is called these days)
