Hi Tomeu,

to be fair, it's probably a bit too early to think about a simplified
API on the bindings side, but ideally messaging clients should rarely
need to use these interfaces at all.

In the future, we expect the password/keyring manager (e.g. Seahorse on
GNOME) to install a handler for this kind of channels, which would take
care of setting up all the information needed for authentication.
Clients should just request e.g. an encrypted text channel and (if they
want) observe the state changes of the authentication channel until the
channel they requested goes 'encrypted' (or it doesn't).
