If somebody would like to implement that it would be great. The Forum client is
basically an extended jabber client. If you would put the games widgets in a
separate area that would form a nice base for Forum client :-). This *may* also
be useful as part of a 2-way approach to DotGNU-TCG (anybody got an idea for a
better name?), using both frontended (what you suggest) tech in the beginning
and complete webservice later.
