Yeah, the Telepathy branch was just merged yesterday into the main
branch, but it's got a long way to go before being stable & feature
comparable to what the current loudmouth back-end supports.

Ubuntu was gonna switch over to using the TP back-end for Gossip, but
Martyn (Gossip's upstream maintainer) persuaded them not to, since he
didn't want to get flooded with bug reports. :(
