Ok, so I can use nice_agent_get_local_candidates() to acquire a GSList* of
local connection type candidates. I then transmit this to the other agent
who probably does a nice_agent_set_remote_candidates() with that data (also,
he acquired his local candidates, sent them to me, and I called
nice_agent_set_remote_candidates() on those).

Now all I need to know is how you serialize whatever data is returned in
that GSList*, so I can transmit it. :) I think I'm starting to get this...
