I've got a fair bit done on integrating KIMProxy+KIMIface with the rest of KDE
now, and now I'm looking for the right place in kdelibs to put the core
library, dcop interface specification and servicetype definition.
The current situation is like this
kimiface.h : generic DCOP interface for chat applications
libkimproxy : glue logic for client apps to use, aggregates information from
any kimiface imeplementations
Kopete implements kimiface.h, built against local copy
Can put IM addresses and IM derived contact information into KABC
KDEPIM has local clone of kimproxy etc in libkdepim due to kde 3.2
KMail uses kimproxy for presence display in mail headers
KAddressbook uses kimproxy for presence display in summary view
can edit IM addresses in custom editor tab.
konq-plugins/kuick uses kimproxy for file transfer (not yet committed)

In addition, I've started talking with Konversation people about implementing
KIMIface, and if any games or krdc developers want to use KIMProxy for
invitations it would be cool.
The actual volume of code to go in kdelibs is pretty small (~1000LOC). Do you
have any suggestions where to put it?
