I implemented libotr for iPhone in under a day so I'd say it's not
particularly difficult.


Basically you just need to implement that structure OtrlMessageAppOps and
all of those static functions need to be modified to work with how Gajim
does its stuff. Then just follow the readme for how to encode/decodes
messages, or look at the bottom of my file for how I did it.
