Text-based MSN Client with offline messaging support

Is anyone aware of a solely text based msn client supporting the newer features of the msn protocol (most specifically, offline messaging).

Pidgin comes with a text based client called finch but I'm not sure about offline messages.

Pidgin doesn't have offline messaging support for MSN (would be useful for me if it did!).
