Re: 3.12 feature: polari

So there's going to be Empathy, Chat and Polari?

Each with a different use-case?

Maybe taking the lead from Google on their Hangouts for Everything (including MMS and SMS) might be a better route?

Happy to help tho

That seems like confusing balkanisation to me. So if I'm having a
conversation in an IRC channel with someone, and we decide to take it
*off* the channel to private messages, it suddenly ends up in a
different app altogether?

Or would the differentiation be on the *protocol* it uses? Which doesn't
sound like a very user-friendly idea either. And many "IM" protocols
actually support group chats or meetings too...

And if there's an IRC channel with only two people in, what then? :)
