I'm glad this came up, as I've been working on a new version of the  
Meanwhile library (Meanwhile2), that-- among many other changes-- is  
built around g-object. The API has changed significantly (using event  
notification rather than structs filled with callback function  
pointers, rewritten service interaction, etc). Meanwhile2 isn't  
complete, but when it is, and when an updated prpl is written for it,  
Sametime support will be in the same boat that SILC is.
