Description

Smuxi could use existing accounts of Telepathy and import them into Smuxi or only show them for use. That way the user would have a very easy migration experience from Telepathy to Smuxi.

The DBus API of Telepathy doesn't seem to expose the "protocol" field which is essential:
http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/spec/Account.html

The GLib based C API does expose it though:
http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/doc/telepathy-glib-0.10.x/telepathy-glib-account.html#tp-account-get-protocol

So Smuxi should provide a telepathy-glib GIR-based binding

The protocol is part of the dbus API path IIRC.
