AOL is a very huge company, before closing ICQ they'll think a lot on
the self popularity. On the other side I think there's a kind of
contract/agreement with Mirabilis, which forces AOL supporting their
servers. IMHO maximum that AOL guys can do -- start
shareware project and ofter some time remove public versions.

P.S. Why ICQMerge hasn't been released? :)
