I'd just like to clarify that a bit - KTp offers sets of (optional) applets
allows you to use KTp from Plasma only, ie. there's a presence applet
(kinda like a systray icon), which expands into a contact list if clicked
and you can also have a chat applet (kinda like facebook chat). Besides
that it also has full QWidget based stuff too (also kxmlgui and friends).

Of course this can all be mixed and thanks to the architecture, new
completely different clients/UIs can exist and be mixed in too
one could use the Empathy for audio/video calls, for example).
