I believe we only use these when people have trouble using a method we
call "clientLogin" that uses login.messaging.aol.com. I'm not sure if
this is the same or not.

I believe that this is because we have tried multiple times to get IDs
and were unable to get in contact with anyone who could/would issue
them to us.
Note that libpurple (the IM communication library underlying Pidgin)
is used by multiple clients, and this may affect this issuance.

We appreciate the heads up, although more lead time would of course
have been easier to coordinate.
I will be mostly unavailable over the next few weeks, so hopefully
another developer can schedule a conference call.
