Actually, having Chat working as a regular IM client would be very
interesting and may not be a very big project. The only missing piece
is being able to add contacts to your roster other than through the
mesh view.

I think the idea is to add a palette option somewhere that allows you
to type or paste a contact ID so it will appear in your friends view.
Then you would get presence notification, the ability to chat and
transfer files, and with some extra work, a/v conversations.

If someone would like to jump on this challenge, it's there waiting for you!
