Yes. I wrote a simple telepathy-python script to send and receive files
using Telepathy. It has not been reviewed yet so it's probably not
perfect but seems to do the job.

Yes, currently  FT is implemented only in Salut (link-local XMPP) but
having it working in Gabble (jabber) is one of our priority so that
shouldn't take too long.

You can get the master version using git:
git clone git://git.collabora.co.uk/git/telepathy-salut.git

But I have good hope to make a new release today so it should be in
Debian pretty soon.
