I am currently building a prototype telepathy client that uses the
Ubuntu SDK ("ubuntu IM"). I don't have much free time right now either,
but I think by May it should have basic functionality and be ready to be
merged into messaging-app. I don't care about any fancy features (video,
group chats etc) for now.
Contact me as soon as you have some free time.

This is how it looks currently (only the contact lists works so far):
