Is it possible to make a rainmeter skin for Msn messenger conversations?

I'm working on a skin that will be able to display the contents of any chat client with a live-updating plain-text log, such as Trillian.

Sending messages would be more difficult unless you can find a client that accepts command-line messages. I have no idea if such a thing exists, but it's entirely possible.

The simple answer is "not really". There's no way to get your contact list, let alone who is online, you cannot send messages and even reading the logs is a daunting task thanks to how they are stored. Like Kaelri says, other chat clients like Trillian will have better luck at reading the locks since they will likely be plaintext or simple XML, but chatting directly is probably not going to happen any time soon.
