There's MSN and AIM API out there, you could use to code your own messenger (none of the thirdparty messengers really use it... to restrictive... ignoring their ToS).
Actually AIM uses the AIM API's that they release publically as well....and multiheaded clients are a violation of the AIM API ToS if I remember correctly. Which considering AOLs departure from the internet...it's a good chance if it showed up as decent usage on the API server it'll get killed by AOLs 1000 person legal team.
My point here. Additionally I don't know of a well known and used thirdpary client using the APIs and using reverse engineered and derivative clients are prohibitten aswell, though...
