Nifty. Never seen this before. I had a quick peek. From what I've 
gathered in the last 5 minutes or so, they appear to use a kernel 
extension to accomplish this hack! This seems to support the argument 
that iChat does not support plugins :)

I think I'd rather prefer the AIM proxy solution with an appropriate pf 
rdr rule (I think this is the same idea Len suggested).
