KTP: buggy, upstream, maintained, no IM integration, easy to configure
and connect.

Kopete: buggy, no upstream, unmaintained, IM integration, not always
simple to configure and connect, advanced option.

KTP is buggy because is very young, Kopete is buggy because is unmaintained.

What is better, IM integration and advanced configuration with a buggy
and unmaintained client or no IM integration and essential
configuration with a buggy but maintained client?

About IM integration:
I not understand yet what is it.
IM have sense if it can reduce the icons in the systray wrapping some
icons of "social and instant message" applications in a single icon.
i.e.: when I start Choqok the icon is displayed both in systray and in
IM applet, this is a no sense.
