           Summary: Alternate constructor to create TpChannel from an a{sv}
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-glib
        AssignedTo: will.thompson at collabora.co.uk
        ReportedBy: simon.mcvittie at collabora.co.uk
         QAContact: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org

If we could pass an a{sv} of immutable properties to a TpChannel at construct
time, this would speed up construction considerably when the Requests API
becomes available - we could pre-populate a lot of the cached information.

The API could perhaps be:

TpChannel *tp_channel_new_with_properties (TpConnection *, const GHashTable *)

This might also be a good time to extend the "channel-ready" guarantee to
include "we have inspected the channel's TargetHandle", as Zdra has requested.
On modern connection managers this will often be essentially free, by using the
TargetID property.
