I read your message three time but I still can't figure out if you're for or against Empathy in Gnome.

Being a part of GNOME is not just writing an app that happens to use GTK
(and don't even talk about the evolution - great way to smash your
addressbook). The fact that it is a successful, widely used program
doesn't come into it. It's not a GNOME program (in all the meanings that
that has, the least of which is has it actually been accepted into
GNOME!) and doesn't want to be.
So fine. If one or three other groups want to work on capabilities that
_will_ integrate properly with the GNOME desktop and allow other apps to
use it, then all the better.
