I don't think the 'file transfer plugin' (basically an FTP server  
implemented as a Pidgin plugin) is within appropriate scope of the  
project.  There are plenty of existing solutions to file sharing,  
including solutions provided by the protocols themselves.  Do any  
other developers disagree and think this would be a project for which,  
as described in Jean-Grégoire Foulon's email, they would vote when it  
comes time to accept or reject proposals?
