Description

It would be cool if BEEM could support XEP-0301 real-time text ( http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0301.html ).
It's useful for deaf (who can't use the phone) & also fun for the occasional use when you're in a very conversational mood during texting on GTalk. I am deaf, so that's why I benefit from this...

Animation of what real time text look like:

My own XEP-0301 open source Java source code can be taken from here:
http://code.google.com/p/realjabber/source/browse/trunk/Java/src/?r=20
(Java & smack, so already ready to build into BEEM!)
Ignore ChatClient.java -- that's just a crude test program for desktop Java (but you can use it to learn how to use the smack extension module). Take the code, add a tiny bit of UI glue, and commit to BEEM!
Become the world's first Android messaging program with real-time text? ;-)

Alternatively, grant me commit priveleges, so I can add this myself to BEEM as unobtrusively as possible (off by default, but with the ability to initiate real-time text via a menu or button).
