Kopete is nice. But Google Talk configuration should not have to be
this annoying.

To get Google Talk to work, you have to add "Jabber" in your accounts
list, change the default port to 443, turn on SSL, set the default
server to talk.google.com, and then plug in your name and password.

Wouldn't it just be easier to have a "Google Talk" option that
pre-sets this stuff? An end-user would probably just give up or try to
use Pidgin or Empathy.
