[GSoC] Thread-safe libpurple

I have applied for GSoC for XMPP Standards Foundation with idea to
create an universal XMPP transport using libpurple. I'm aware that
libpurple is not thread-safe, thus I will have to make it such to avoid
scalability issues. I was suggested by Andreas Monitzer to move static
variables to Thread-local storage.
I've already found some things which will have to be moved, however
I'm not really familiar with libpurple source, so I have the question -
how big is that task? I have decent C skills and experience in parallel
programming, but little knowledge of the libpurple. How much time do you
think it may take?
Thank you in advance
