Slighty OT:<br><br>The goal of the mono-loader project is to make
libpurple (and therefore pidgin / finch) extensible via .net
languages. Wrapping up all of libpurple so that you can write a
standalone client in .net, python, java, etc is a bit bigger of
undertaking. So there are some difference between what I'm currently
working towards and what sascha and co. want. Creating language
bindings is something that I'd be interested in doing post-SoC (Sascha
and I have talked about this already I think), and could really provide
a lot of benefit.
