This said, these are just numbers. If 200 people file the same bug and all
of them are already resolved so the tickets are closed, that boosts the
numbers. etc etc

So, how is msn-pecan actually better, and worth the pain of introducing new
bugs and implementing the protocol?

Also, on another topic. You have had some very obvious personal issues with
the pidgin/libpurple team. Their opinion is that you are hard to work with.
Later on down the road if the Adium team uses the plugin you have worked on,
is this what the team has to look forward to? How do you handle things when
people take a while to review patches, or do not like your patch?
