We will keep Google Talk around as long as it works.  We will keep
XMPP support indefinitely.  As of right now there is no sunset for
the XMPP interface to Google Talk that we know of, and in fact the
statements out of Google are somewhat ambiguous.  For now, we're just
waiting to see what happens.
