[Telepathy] Investigating QML + Telepathy

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to discover telepathy's message handling capabilities 
with the final intention of integrating it with Qt's QML.

My strategy is to first experiment with building a simple text-based chat 
client using Salut and going through the developer's guide. I found an 
example: gnio-sender.c which sends files to other clients over bonjour. I 
intended to first understand how to use the framework with the 
glib-based examples (in C or C++) and then create a qml ui to work with 

Am I doing this wrong? I thought gnio.sender.c would be a great starting 
point, but looking deeper into the documented function calls, several of 
them are already deprecated. I've gone through the developer manual and 
Telepathy-Qt4 examples several times, but I cannot appear to find the 
simplest neccessary information (ie how to get a list of contacts, how to 
send and receive messages etc). Which function calls/classes should I be 
focusing on?

I hope someone can provide a few pointers as to where I can look. Whatever 
I learn, I could publish it somewhere for others who want to learn 
Telepathy to look at, as well. It'll be great if that happens.

Thanks for all your advice,
