I've done a mockup [1] for this project idea, please comment it.

I think, that student, who gets accepted with this project (assuming,
this project will be chosen at all) *shouldn't touch website at all*,
before having Pidgin/libpurple part completely done. The point is,
that client part is easy to under-estimate and inexperienced student
could focus on (easy, but possibly infinitely time consuming) website
part, not leaving enough time to do the rest well. Please note, that
in most (?) cases, all plans for work after-gsoc evaporates after the
last payment.
