WLM doesn't appear to provide a plugin SDK that would let you hook messages, etc., like Skype does.

Also in my experience making plugins for IM networks in the past (AIM/Yahoo), they aren't designed to handle fast interactive communications like on IRC or PMs with responses over 1-2 lines without flooding off or dropping messages. Skype and Jabber (which is supported by the bot on Linux/FreeBSD) don't seem to have those limitations.

One possibility for more IM integration would be to use libpurple from Pidgin (or something similar, depending on licensing), I don't know if you are interested in that or not. You would probably still run in to the flooding off/dropping messages problems like I mentioned above though.

Pidgin/libpurple is a free open source IM client that you can use instead of the official ones so you can have all your different IM accounts in one app. I'll have to check on the licensing, or find something else similar to libpurple but it may be possible to add support for it.

Skype limits how fast you can send messages on Windows now?

I think the current build of the Skype plugin currently only accepts messages from recognized users, although I just added the option to respond to anyone in source so future builds should work for that.

To make sure you are recognized, don't forget to add your Skype hostmask to the bot for your account. e.g. yourskypeusername!yourskypeusername@skype.com

New information on this: You can use the free software Bitlbee to get on IM networks. It acts as an IRC server and bridges IRC protocol to IM services. MSN, Yahoo, AIM/ICQ, etc. are supported.
