Keyring integration/detachable sessions and GSoC

In browsing for Google Summer of Code project ideas, I noticed a few
interesting projects where some progress has already been made.
Integration with desktop keyring managers is a feature I'd like to have,
and was a GSoC 2008 project . The SoC 2008 project status page lists
"Waiting 3.0.0", and I see some recent cleanup work by qulogic in
*im.pidgin.soc.2008.masterpassword, so perhaps there's not sufficient
work remaining* for another GSoC project.
"libpurple detachable sessions" is listed on the current project ideas
page, but was a GSoC project in 2010 . The suggested "remote mode"
could probably make a substantial project, though I'm not confident I
have the necessary networking knowledge. It looks like there's also work
to be done to bring the existing progress to a usable state.
I'd appreciate any insight into the status of either project.
