Enable Data Detectors in iChat

Do you like how you can get an e-mail from someone about an appointment and Mail.app will allow you to just enter it in iCal? I really do like it and it has made my life just a step or two easier. Well over the holiday my family bought my Grandfather a Mac and we have since really gotten to love the iChat application. Over at Mac User.com they tell us that if you will type in a one line command that you can enable the Data Detectors in iChat. According to Mac User.com just enter

defaults write com.apple.iChat EnableDataDetectors 1

into terminal and iChat will have the same ability to have to enter the details into iCal just like in Mail.app.
