I personally like the approach PyMSN-t is taking: write a modular
transport (adaptable to other protocols) in Python, use the protocol
implementation of Twisted for the protocol specific things. I personally
have more trust in Python implementations than in the Gaim C libraries.
They're probably a bit more (easier) portable too.

That's why it would be cool if protocol-specific effort went into
Twisted, and that other transports also base themselves on the PyMSN-t
framework for building transports.
