[GSOC] File Transfer Progress as of August 18th 2013.

I've been experimenting with libnice for a while as Google Talk requires
candidates to be enumerated for NAT Traversal. I initially tried to acheive
the same with Farstream2 that the pidgin codebase already makes use of, but
unfortunately that wasn't feasible.

Right now, Google Talk acknowledges the receipt of candidates and also
sends out it's own list of candidates.

According to the logs gathered regarding Google Talk's order of activities,
it seems now, that this should be followed with a HTTP GET request from
GTalk's side (I'm currently trying to send a file TO Gtalk).

So, I'm trying to figure out a way to read the inbound HTTP Data. I'm
making use of NiceAgent from libnice to achieve candidate listing. The
problem here is that I don't know which of the candidates are selected as a
pair. And so I do not know how to set up a receiving point correctly which
will log all the HTTP Data that comes in.
Any suggestions are welcome.
