Those hash maps (mHandles and mIdentifiers) are specific to the
telepathy-resiprocate implementation, they basically cache the handles
(unsigned integers) used by Telepathy.

If you like, you can use them and persist them to disk without creating
another class for them.  Keep in mind that when you do start supporting
a server-side buddy list, you would need to download the list of
contacts from the server and use it to initialize those maps each time
the user logs in

Please also see the comments I just added to the README about padsp, you
