I suspect that the likes of gaim might prove to be a good starting 
point for finding such a library.

I vaguely recall hearing that at least one gaim developer was trying 
to produce a relatively low-level unified IM library, but due to my 
terrible memory, I can't recall who, or what status this reached. I 
seem to recall it being a side project.

Maybe one of the gaim developers knows?
