I probably shouldn't have been quite so off hand about it, it's one of
the constantly brought up "requirements" that everyone talks about
no-one volunteers to actually do such that I'm fed up of talking about
It's something that needs to be done upstream at the telepathy level,
only then can we do our GUI layers upon on it.
There was an upstream GSOC project last year, stuff exists in a branch
but it was never merged. Not helped that OTR is (from a technical POV)
a massive hack and upstream do like to do things "properly".
I'm sure they'd help anyone wanting to work on it, just as I'd go well
out of my way to help anyone who wanted to work on the relevant KDE
side once it was implemented upstream.
