I think we should focus on MSNP15 (the latest AFAIK), so we have one protocol
version well documented. If a new one come up, we should still work to
complete the MSNP15 documentation, when its complete we can move to the
next one if it add some significant features, if it doesn't, then we can wait
until a major new version.

I guess the pymsn guys have almost all the MSNP15 protocol covered, we should
hear what they have to say ;).
 If there is some part still missing on their implementation I would
love to try to
investigate about it.

So I guess we should document what they already know :P

PS: emesenelib implementation is of MSNP13, some thigs are shared with MSNP15 so
dx (the other developer) and I can document some of that parts and let
pymsn et al
document the parts that are particular to MSNP15.

what do you think?
