Filing a ticket isn't really an appropriate way to ask a question - the support or development mailing list is a more appropriate venue and will likely have more eyeballs.

Imessage isn't at all XMPP, and whatsapp appears to be nonstandard to the point where it wont work with any stock XMPP client.

It's unlikely that Pidgin itself will support either of these; that said, anyone is welcome to write a third party plugin to do so.

WhatsApp plugin works well, iMessage doesn't have enough protocol docs yet
