Related to this. For Salut (the telepathy link-local xmpp CM) i did some code
which wraps various parts of the avahi API in GObjects. Which makes it much
nicer to work with in a GLib program.

My original intention was to refactor/complete these for potential inclusion in
avahi-glib.  Unfortunately due to a lack of time on my side this still hasn't
happend. But if someone else is interested at working on this, please feel free
to do so :) Imho most of the work would be in adding the parts that i didn't
wrap yet. (Assuming avahi upstream likes the current api it offers)

Salut can be retreived from darcs at

Or as a tarball on http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-salut/
