libpurple with Qt

Libpurple seems heavily based on glib library.

Threading is very simple with qt,
maybe it would be a safer bet to run the glib loop into a thread,
then connect the static method callbacks to my interface using signals.

I could developp my own abstract layer to transfer messages, roster, status,
etc to my gui.

Thus if I want to add another library like libpurple in the future, I'll
just rewrite that abstract signal based layer and both library will run in
their own thread.

That would make the app multi-library and multi-protocols :)
