Hm, it's always good to have alternatives, however, I don't think
libpurple would be a good one - it's known to have security issues all
the time and it's ICQ and MSN support aren't very good. While the MSN
support is still better than that of pyMSN-t, pyICQ-t works way better
for me than libpurple.

What would be more interesting maybe would be a way to turn Miranda
plugins into gateways, as those most of the time have very decent
support for proprietary plugins. AFAIK, Miranda got by far the best
opensource plugins to connect to ICQ.
