It's all part of the application code. This app will go into Meego Tablet.

I think what you are looking for is on the folder plugin and telepathy-qml-

The first one create and loads models to be used by QML.

The second one, particularly telepathymanager, has the communication with the 
base tp-qt4 classes.

There's no such thing as TelepathyQML.

My advice is that you do most of the complex code on C++ classes, and you use 
QML for the UI part. You'll have enough complexity on both sides, and QML has 
limitations to deal with the kind of complex calls required by Telepathy.

For another example, you can take a look at KDE Telepathy, which has QML UI 
too. In any case, you'll still have a great amount of C++ code to write.
