I will take a look at the latest libempathy. I was looking at the dbus
interface for interacting with sugar and it seems as though a video chat
app could be written with telepathy as well. I will look at the previous
projects sometime today and see what they do/use. I think if the previous
projects are using telepathy, then its worth sticking with that, otherwise
if they use libempathy, then I could update the code to use the latest
empathy as a start.
