I have not tested it yet with yahoo. If it works or not depends on the
yahoo transport/gateway used. It's true that commercial vendors change
their protocols every now and then without telling anyone - this has
happened with MSN (suprise!). Usually open source developers update
their code after some time.

I'll probably test the bot with all possible networks when I have time.
Anyone is of course welcome to use and test it - the more people the
better. And this project is not useful if no-one uses it.

Yes. XMPP is IETF standard, Jabber is XMPP + some
enhancements/proposals, and gtalk uses XMPP/Jabber protocol.
