Irchat - The ultimate coolness
Irchat is an IRC-client for Emacs. It's completely written in Elisp.
Irchat (from version 3.00) also contains support for IDEA encryption
providing with secure messaging through IRC-network. See the
Irchat 4.00 screenshot.
MSN Messenger Support
And now something completely different. Irchat now supports
also MSN Messenger protocol. Stay in touch also with those of
your friends that have given in to the dark side. No need to install
MS-stuff for that. MSN-support is available in Irchat version 4.00
and above. Now you can also control your Irchat session through cool
(version 20021109 and above).
The journey to the dark side has been reversed as of 2009-07-14 and all
subsequent versions (major version 5 and above and snapshots 20090714
and later) ship without MSN stuff. It was however already
totally incompatible with the current MSN network.

reference implementation available. Reference implementation is
written in c and it should be reasonably easy to integrate it with
