Disclosure: I work for Collabora, which sponsors Empathy development.

I'm with Travis here. API quality/stability and documentation are weak points.
It could probably do with some HIG review too, though I think it's less of a
concern as Empathy inherits from Gossip's mature UI design.

A possible concern is that libempathy-gtk is GPL rather than LGPL, due to the
fact that much of its code is taken from Gossip.

A question about external dependencies: which Telepathy components would be
blessed external dependencies?

I'm in favour of making Empathy a Gnome program, but I don't want it in before
it's ready. Putting it in prematurely would be a disservice to our users and
