Unfortunately, I hate to say it, but it is unlikely happen. Part of the greatness of the internet and forums is the fact that information is stored there, potentially for eternity, and people can reference back to it. It also allows people from across the globe to be a part of the conversation, rather than just who ever is on at the time.
As I have seen with other forums, adding a chat feature, removes many posts and informational topics out of the forums, and into a temporary chat box, where nothing is stored, and only a select few are able to converse.

I'll make sure the idea gets passed along, I just don't know how feasible it would be
Hadn't thought of that but makes sense.
