If D-Bus bindings already exist for your favourite flavour of Lisp, you
might like to try using the Telepathy framework
<http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/> for your program's IM component. I
suspect that using a D-Bus API from Lisp would get you up and running
faster than writing a language binding for libpurple.
