Killed the <server> parameter to "account add" and changed the default
server for OSCAR to what both login.icq.com and login.oscar.aol.com resolve
to these days. There's no need to specify a server anymore so why bother.
And cleaned up the docs (removed all references to those OSCAR servers).

    56                                                 Specifying a server is required for OSCAR, since OSCAR can be used for both ICQ- and AIM-connections. Although these days it's supposed to be possible to connect to ICQ via AIM-servers and vice versa, we like to stick with this separation for now. For ICQ connections, the servername is <emphasis>login.icq.com</emphasis>, for AIM connections it's <emphasis>login.oscar.aol.com</emphasis>.
     56                                                OSCAR is the protocol used to connect to AIM and/or ICQ. The servers will automatically detect if you're using a numeric or non-numeric username so there's no need to tell which network you want to connect to.

    597                                 Can be set for Jabber- and OSCAR-connections. For OSCAR, this must be set to <emphasis>login.icq.com</emphasis> if it's an ICQ connection, or <emphasis>login.oscar.aol.com</emphasis> if it's an AIM connection. For Jabber, you have to set this if the servername isn't equal to the part after the @ in the Jabber handle.
     597                                Can be set for Jabber- and OSCAR-connections. For Jabber, you might have to set this if the servername isn't equal to the part after the @ in the Jabber handle. For OSCAR this shouldn't be necessary anymore in recent BitlBee versions.
