Sure, I mostly opened the bug for completion purpose.
Oth, I'd really like to move forward on bug #29973 and we can't really merge it
before we have a least on TpChannel subclass to proof use it.
As TpStreamTube and TpTextChannel are not that trivial maybe it could be this
one which is less controversial? Oth, that's not true anymore if we want to
change the spec first.

I don't really care but staying coherent and "sync" with tp-qt4 could be good
enough arguments to always have "Channel" in the name.

Yep, see the other comment :)

Yeah that makes sense. Empathy does check if the channel is already listing but
I think this change would be sane.

I'd vote for a small object because from my experience each time we have this
kind of thing as a struct we end up at some point saying "shit it would easier
to use if it was a proper object".
