Sending IM API

I'm trying to plug Pidgin into a current project and I could use some  
advice as to the best approach for solving this problem because I'm  
sure it's been solved a dozen times before.

Basically I want to send an IM from any account I have setup in  
Pidgin to a specified user from my external program.  How this  
happens is not extremely important.  I've started writing a Perl  
Plugin that takes tcp requests, but I really don't want to have to  
implement a tcp server.  I was wondering if it would be possible  
using gaim-send or something similar.  There may already be a plugin  
out there that will allow me to do this, but if there is I haven't  
been able to find it.
