Summary: adding ICQ file transfer?

Initial Comment:
Adding the ablity to do ICQ file transfer would be very handy.  At the moment I 
am forced to go to another client (trillian at the moment) when I wish to do a 
file transfer.  Since ICQ and AIM both use OSCAR, and Gaim currently suports 
AIM file transfer, couldn't this be added fairly simply (yes I know nothing is 
ever as simple as you think in programming)?

I've noticed that a file transfer on ICQ is only possible, if both clients
are _online_ (not away or n/a or something like that). File transfer from
ICQ to gaim and vice versa works fine for me, even though I'm sitting
behind a proxy that doesn't accept connections from outside. I have just
tested sending a file from Trillian to gaim, which didn't work since
Trillian was complaining about me not showing my IP adress (which isn't
quite true... I've deactivated the "ICQ/AIM proxy server" option in the
account preferences).

Upon further testing there are a lot of client that are apparently not
compatiable.  For example I can't send a file to someone using Trillain and
vice versa.  Gaim does not even give me the option.  The problem I
mentioned before was most likely due to a bad connection on their side
(after doing more testing).  But this is more serious of a issue since many
clients apparently don't allow a file exchange with Gaim.  Also this is not
just 3rd party clients, as the offical ICQ  Mac OS 3.4 client does not work
with Gaim with reagard to file transfers either.  Very strange, especially
since of all the clients I would think that Trillian would do a tranfer
with Gaim.

Hmm I tried it the other day several times and it would start connecting
then drop befor the file actually got transfered.  I will try it again,
perhaps it was only that person and/or that day.

ICQ file transfer works great for me. Where's your problem. Just
right-click a buddy and choose "Send File". There shouldnt be a problem.
