I said your using them on top of another backend, not that you
implemented one. I didn't say you didn't work hard either.

Actually, yes it is.

For a start, the whole Jabber backend is a large portion of the code
base for Gossip. If you remove that, then sure you can say you have 1/2
the code base in Empathy.

Likewise, if you move all the account management out of
libgossip/libempathy and use MissionControl instead, then of course, you
are going to have less lines of code.
