Logging into Google Talk with bitlbee

UPDATED: now with shorter and more accurate instructions ;)

I keep forgetting how to do this, so here it is:

account add jabber [your email address]
account set oauth on
account gtalk on

And then you'll be prompted to go through oauth authorization with a link in another chat window.
