Not intending to sound disrespectful here, but writing a wrapper to make Adium
recognize and use a libpurple plugin means that a developer such as myself needs
to expend extra effort to provide Adium compatibility. I personally am not
willing to expend this effort for as trivial as most of my plugins are
(ListHandler, for example, which has code at least one Adium developer was
interested in), and I wouldn't blame Felipe for not wanting to have to somehow
acquire a Mac to be able to develop and test the wrappings for msn-pecan.
