what about IRC? Would we need to have xchat around if using empathy? As
you say, having all those apps not share anything but the network cable
is a pain for users, so I'm all for having a single backend to manage
messaging, included IRC.

Also, if it provides a library/backend to be shared amongst apps,
can/will Ekiga use that?
