Many thanks for this piece of information. I'm looking at the code, and 
there appears to be TelepathyQML component. Is this part of a 
meego-specific release somewhere?

I'm using Ubuntu desktop as my primary development platform. Which would 
be better, do you think: TelepathyQML as a "native" QML library, or 
building something with TelepathyQt4 first with a QML wrapper?

Best regards,
