Decentralized instant messaging

'yeemp' is a decentralized instant messaging system. It uses GPG over SSL for encryption, and UTF-8 to enable non-Latin text to be transferred. The clients include support for Japanese, Cyrillic, and Ogham input, as well as direct UTF-8. Yeemp includes a command-line client, an X client, a server, and a simple Web-based client. The clients can also use the AIM and ICQ protocols.
