Documentation/Maemo 5 Developer Guide/Using Connectivity Components/Implementing Custom Connection Managers
Telepathy provides D-Bus-based framework that unifies all forms of real-time communication, for example, instant messaging, IRC, voice and video over Internet. The framework provides an interface for plug-ins to extend the protocol support by implementing new connection managers. All client applications that communicate via Telepathy framework architecture can then use these new supported protocols.
Because the connection manager uses D-Bus for communication, it can be implemented using any language that supports D-Bus communication, even an interpreted language like, for example, Python. However, in order to allow the connection manager to run natively on Internet tablets, C or C++ is currently preferred.
