2 options are interesting for me. I'm looking for support in existing
protocols like MSN and Yahoo! because these are most used in IM, we
can limit to MSN, all depending on the scope that we will define to
the project.

create a general interface for RTP will require pidgin as IM client in
both sides, at least I see it well.
