You say Irix "users" (plural)??? There is actually an Irix port of the 
Linux gAim chat thingie. It works, but its gui looks terrible because of 
font issues. The text is unreadable. Irix aside though, I primarily use 
Windows 2000 from behind a corporate firewall. Aim is blocked. Streaming 
is blocked. Downloading MP3 or WAV files is blocked. It's like a giant 
"fun filter" to force work to happen. Anyway, as Troy suggested, something 
built-in to the dev environment would be great. And having it communicate 
over the standard port 80 with a new rev-chat-specific protocol would 
accommodate the firewall requirement and prevent it from being filtered 
out.
