Can you access Yahoo Chat from the Messenger API?

I'm trying to build a bot to monitor a Yahoo Chat room. What I am struggling with is finding a modern API that offers chat (not just IM).

I just finished trying on a bunch of different versions of ymsg and also yTrainer. They are all 5+ years old and it looks like just a few small things are broke but I have no idea how to fix them.

I would prefer to do this in C# anyway. I have combed the messenger api docs http://developer.yahoo.com/messenger/guide/ but there was no mention of joining a chat room. So is there a way to join a Yahoo chat room using the official API or are we left picking through a box full of broken toys from generations past?
