Martijn and I had a nice, long, discussion... In the end, we both agree
that kabc is the more appropriate place to store standard information
about messaging, rather than a libkopete.
Further, we've agreed on a design for that an improved KAddressbook UI
could use that information, combine it with a small standard messaging
DCOP interface, and display contact status from *any* messaging system,
whether KDE standard or not. (Simon: yes, we plan on using DCOP, to
handle the jabber or MSN equivalent of a mailto: :-)
Once I've finished with my current project in a month, and Martijn finishes
his thesis in two months, we'll see about putting our design to code. In
the meantime, this eliminates the conflict between Martijn's kopete plans
and libpsi/libkdemp/whatever Justin's lib will be called, so let's put it
on the KDE 3.2 features list!
