Just as a FYI type thing,
I played around with the web messenger, pokes though its menus, and
added a buddy from the provided button. Here's what I found out.
The web messenger only supports two statuses, Available and Invisible.
This should explain the similiar problem in Gaim.
Chat is implemented by starting yahoo's java chat client (which was YCHT
based last time i tried to sniff it).
Adding a buddy is overly complicated. It pops up a java script window
where you enter the buddy, the group, and the a message. It also loads a
distorted image of a random word. For me it was "call". You have to type
this word in. When you click add, it sends the normal add buddy packet,
with extra keys for the text you typed in, and some random funky string,
which i suppose identified which image it used. This should explain the
reason why adding buddies isn't working.
There may have been other things I didn't like, but I don't remember
