Summary: No buddy list import tool for Trillian users

Initial Comment:
Trillian stores buddies in xml.
Gaim does as well.
Yet there is no tool to import my trillian buddy list (which i have spent time 
setting up) into gaim.  Currently a blocker for some users (myself included).

Please add an import tool which will not only take those buddies from other 
sources but also post them to their respective servers so next time i sign in 
from a new machine the list will be semi-restored.

I still don't at all understand what you're asking for.  You haven't
explained why there is a need to import the Trillian buddy list.

If you're talking about setting up a new account and wanting to import the
buddies from an existing account, that is something of a different request
- I just don't see how people would want to move to a different client
*and* new screennames, it doesn't make sense.

If you can't delete buddies, that is a completely different issue (and I
don't see how an import tool would help at all).

If you're saying that we should be able to import the accounts from
Trillian, that would make more sense, but that doesn't appear to be what
you're talking about.

Applications that are offering a better alternative like Gaim have an
'Import from X' feature to coax and help users of other apps come aboard. 
Firefox improts from IE Gaim should do so for Trillian.  This is but an
enhancement request dont feel obliged but I feel its worthwilde to bring
new users aboard.

AIM's server is a mystery to me, if Gaim could help clean up that mess I
could finally get rid of 'buddies' from 7 years ago who I no longer know.

Why is this necessary?

Gaim (and I assume Trillian does this as well) stores buddies on the
server for all protocols that support it (the one protocol that doesn't
that I'm aware of is IRC).

Simply logging into gaim with your account should import the buddies from
the server.
