I happen to have some knowledge about messaging indicators :). I am very 
happy to provide support for implementing one or even (gasp) do it 
myself. What would be the deadline for such a patch? Can we consider it 
a regression fix?

While I am at it, might as well give my opinion on whether we should 
ship KDE Telepathy or not. My position would be to ship Kopete by 
default in Main, and ship KDE Telepathy in Universe. That gives more 
users the occasion to test it, report bugs and make it solid. It also 
avoids disrupting Kubuntu software selection too much for LTS.

I don't think the fact KDE Telepathy has a KCM is an issue: if it is not 
shipped by default the KCM will only be present for those who 
consciously installed it.
