	The author of this program has taken down his website and through
contact with him, I know that he no longer will maintain this program.  I am
already discussing plans with another programmer for him to start maintaining
it (as he already has done work towards making it work with gaim 2.0). As soon
as it is finalized and he has a site to host the sources on, this should be
working again.  The original author has expressed his approval of another
interested party taking over the work on this project.
