Hi, the Telepathy framework [1] is probably the best thing to interact
with  IM protocols in a desktop-neutral and interoperable way.

To make integration with the GNOME desktop seamless, the easier way is
then probably to write a GVfs backend based on Telepathy (or the XMPP
library you're going to use); that would allow the kind of integration
in the file manager and GTK+ applications you're trying to achieve.
