I think having the messaging indicator without kde-telepathy integrated would 
be a very inconsistent U/I.  There are two ways this could be solved.  I'd 
prefer the one where we keep the messaging indicator.

I think privacy is very important, so I think if it's going to displace 
kopete, then OTR support is a requirement.  If it's in addition, then it's a 
good then, but not essential.

I haven't had a chance to test it yet and since AIM is the only thing I use 
that I think is in it's "space", I'm not sure how much use I'd get out of it.  
Once I get a chance to test it, if I come up with anything else, I'll let you
