And what use is an instant messenger that does not support Yahoo?

As a project with limited resources we do not support applications that:
a.) Are maintained upstream
b.) Have standalone replacements that fully include the feature set of the
application in question
c.) Would utilise an unusual amount of Trinity developer resources to
maintain, especially applications where there are legal problems or b.)
above applies.
d.) Have a very low user base under Trinity.
