Let me clarify; Adium is important for msn-pecan, but so are other
features already in the queue. I said that YIM support might be easy
in msn-pecan 0.2, but actually I meant 0.3. So, it depends on when the
work in Adium 1.5 starts and same for msn-pecan 0.3.
Also, it depends on how big the response of the user-base is.
Supposing msn-pecan 0.3 is ready by the time Adium 1.5 starts, and a
considerable amount of users complain about lack of YIM support, then
yeah; I don't see any problem implementing the missing feature.
However that is something that we should decide later on when 1.5
