We have no time at present to attempt to support additional protocols,
particularly where we do not use them ourselves. It is however entirely
possible to create support for a new protocol as a 3rd party plugin.
That being said, some of the new IM services are in fact xmpp servers,
which gaim supports already, by creating a "jabber" account with the
correct values. I know livejournal works this way, I do not know if
myspace is or is not also xmpp.

It's not. I've looked at it briefly, and it doesn't look like it'd be
too hard to figure out, it also runs on the same port as MSN. I may
eventually pursue it more, but thats completely dependent on time I
don't have. :)

Which is what leads to the claims that it "uses the MSN protocol."
I'd say this thing has "summer of code project" written all over it.
