Will POD be supported in a future release?

Downloaded and installed the OTR plugin for Pidgin. Went ahead and
generated keys for the accounts I already have set up...but how do I go
about adding my POD account to this? The list it pulls from is accounts
that were already created from the allowed protocols...so I'm not really
sure how to go about adding POD through the OTR plugin. 

Please advise...

It appears that POD is an encryption system designed to be used over
existing IM networks.  As such, you could implement it in a very similar
manner to any of the existing pidgin encryption plugins, such as the OTR
plugin (a 3rd party plugin that google will easily find).

We do not, however, have any plans to implement it ourselves.
