Because the thing I enjoy most about writing an XMPP client is being
able to hack new protocols and features along with the UI.  It seems to
me that when writing a Telepathy client I would be restricted to the UI
parts, with a more-or-less lowest-denominator protocol engine to
interface to.

Of course, building a Telepathy client would be a different kind of
pleasure.  Some day I will create telepathy.el…

Yes, I figured that.

How come?  (Is there a record of that discussion?)  In any case,
jabber.el won't be able to do better than that.
