We previously had support for old-style Gaim logs, but we removed the
support a while back when the Gaim backend/filter was rewritten because
we couldn't find many people with those logs.

Those logs are a completely different format than the newer Gaim log
files, and quite a bit harder to parse and extract useful information
from.  It's essentially the same as adding support for a totally new IM
or IRC client.

That said, it certainly is possible to do it and we'd happily take a
patch to add it, but I personally don't have plans to do them, sadly.  I
need several more hours in the day. :(
