Google Talk again

A few days ago, Google released their new Hangouts software which supersedes all chat systems previously being used by Google. Unfortunately, Hangouts does not support XMPP federation. That means that Hangouts users are not able to communicate with users on non-Google XMPP (Jabber) servers anymore.

The restrictions that have recently been imposed by Google Talk have been removed; adding Google Task users to the roster now works as expected.
