    I'm not sure if this will help speed implementation, but I have been playing with the 0.29b implementation of MSN group chat, which may in fact be unintentional.

    When an MSN user invites me into a group chat, I get a single chat window from that person. When the other people in the chat send messages, new windows open for them. When I send a message to the group chat window, it goes to everyone in the chat. When I send a message to an individual window, it goes directly to that person.

    I am a big MSN user who has frequent group chats, so I would be happy to help test this out.

    Problem still exists in 0.31 and would be nice to see if fixed.

    I just *hate* to have to switch over to M$N Messenger.

    Given the behavior now that we don't have this when you
    enter a group chat, I think this is a blocker for 1.0. It's
    just too embarrassing not to fix.

    I also add my vote for this (or two or three if I can get away with
    it) - this is the most important feature lacking from Fire in my
    opinion - please add ASAP.

    I'd love to see this, I constantly am having to launch the MS
    version of Messenger to talk in group chats, and I hate to have to
    use more than one program, that's why I use it in the first place

    I started implementing this yesterday, and Mark has gotten it pretty far
    along. We should be good on this front for 1.0.
