Any Yahoo Messenger client in text mode (for console)? :)

I know, sounds a little bit stupid and useless, but I think it would be nice to be able to run YM directly from my console, for many reasons. I work quite often in the console, without any GUI. Can anyone help? Thank you.

I'm trying to do this on FC5, which is my main distribution, but I'd like to know how do you do this in FreeBSD, too.
