Any word on voice or video support in Adium?

I love the app, but I actually do use my iSight to chat with my folks, and I'd love to be able to do it in Adium.

From what people say, the Adium guys are planning on keeping the app simple, and I guess voice/video support would complicate things too much.

Makes sense. In the age of overly "feature" laden apps, that's certainly a worthwhile goal.

I guess I'll just keep using two apps...

i thought i read somewhere that adium 1.0 will have video (or at least audio) support. perhaps i was incorrect or i want it so badly i made it up!

using 2 programs isn't bad, though. i rarely do a video chat, but when i do it's not a hassle to open up iChat.

Update

Although an older post, thought i would update with an overview i found on chat clients.

Here is the LINK for the site from MAC Net Journal.
