IDETalk Jabber Support: proxy support?

Is there any way to set up the integrated Jabber support to connect via a proxy? I use a jabber server external to my workplace, and the firewall here is fairly restrictive. What I generally to is SSH to a host I control outside the firewall and use the client's -D option to create a SOCKS4 proxy. This can then be used to make arbitrary TCP connections.

The SOCKS 4 protocol, at least, is very simple; would supporting it or some other proxying solution be a possibility? Also, does anyone else think this might be a useful feature?

Not everyone has a host outside, and can/want to setup e.g. SSH tunnels..

IDEtalk was created not as generic IM tool. And if you need to use it
in your daily work, IMHO it is quite important reason for your system
administrator to provide you with possibility to use Jabber server (or
setup internal one).

If you think that I'm wrong, feel free to file a Jira issue for this
at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/TW .

Kind regards,
