Messenger client but kepping it simple and with a nice GUI.

Emesene is a python/gtk MSN messenger clone, it uses msnlib (MSNP9)
and try to be a nice looking and simple MSN client.

You can login, send formated messages, smilies, use autoreply, change
status, change nick, send nudges and all the stuff you can do in a
normal MSN client except, file transfers,custom emoticons and display

emesenelib/ProfileManager.py in emesene before 1.6.2 allows local users to
overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the emsnpic temporary file.
