Support for new hangouts chat rooms (chat.google.com)

Google seems to have switched to https://chat.google.com, where there is a new room concept. These rooms don't show up in hangouts.google.com or in pidgin with purple-hangouts. They support threaded conversations within rooms. Is there any support planned for these in this plugin?

    Hangouts Chat is a completely different protocol that's only targeted at gsuite/business/enterprise users. (Those rooms don't show up in the Hangouts mobile app either).

    If there was going to be any support for them, it would be with a separate prpl.

    OK, interesting. One-to-one chats work between chat.google.com and hangouts. I didn't realise the rooms were gsuite/enterprise-specific. That's too bad, I really like using pidgin for chat.
