libpurple is NOT designed to be. I don't think there's ever been a
promise, or a proposed patchest, to do so.
Now it's true places such as Meebo managed to use libpurple in a way PHP
bindings would provide (ie, IM over http), but given they managed to do
it somehow without needing libpurple to be thread safe I'd humbly
suggest it's not as needed as some people think it may be.
Yes, there are recipients on this list who know how to do it but they're
probably still under NDA so I doubt we'll ever hear too much from them
on this topic
There's probably some subtle wording that my early morning reading is
missing in the 'Is it thread safe' section of
https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/WhatIsLibpurple that suggests how to do it.
Still, having said all that, patches welcome.
