The file transfer isn't working for me anyway somehow for instance 
(icq-protocol). Always get that cairo error and then pidgin crashes. Tried 
almost everything. So better FIX this, before thinking about extending this 
basic feature. By the way, zipping/unzipping takes time? What do you want to 
transfer via AIM?? Gigabytes of data??? I mean, it would probably work, but 
therefor you should definitely use something else.
