In fact, when we started doing libotr-ng we also started on prototype
pidgin-otr implementation. A first version of libotr-ng worked quite
well from inside of Pidgin - however, things on the spec side have now
raised away and we haven't looked at the Pidgin side for a while. We
do expect to re-initiate that work very soon. We are of course using
these experiences in our thinking around the design of the API for libotr-ng.
