[Telepathy] implementation of new XEP's

Ok, I'm a bit confused about the Telepathy structure.

I thought Telepathy was a set of protocol implementation on which GUI's
like GNOME's Empathy and KDE Telepathy are built.
But Qt is a GUI toolkit, so TelepathyQt would be quite the same as KDE
Telepathy it seems...

Or are you porting all the protocol implementations from FreeDesktop's
Telepathy as well?

Anyways, it's good to see someone is at least still working on it :) Do you
have an estimate as to when your changes can appear in KDE Telepathy?
