A Javascript port of libotr would be very useful.  I imagine someone
could plug it into the web-based GTalk for some added coolness.  There
are certainly Javascript crypto and bignum libraries you could use to
start with.

My suggestion is to do what we did for the Java port: work from the
spec, but check out the C version if something's unclear.  Of course,
now you could choose to look at either the C or the Java version.  ;-)
