Yes, it's based on the MSNP9 code.

It might make sense to develop against the MSNP15 code, but I'm not
certain about the approach followed.

I will focus on adding features people have been asking, and I'll
advance step by step always providing a working version. Most of the
important features can be achieved with MSNP9 anyway.

Also, I will probably use some SOAP library, and do a lot of hacky
workarounds, so I don't expect this to be merged in the main trunk.
Also I really like git, so I see no reason to use monotone.

Best regards.
