From reading https://gitorious.org/purple-otr (which I just found after
the memories kicked in) it would appear the 'blocker' would be that
purple 3.0.0 would be required for Finch OTR. I don't think that's a
major blocker at all to getting pidgin-otr into a 'current' release.
And, in fact, would no doubt likely lead to much better 'testing' and
tighter integration for 3.0.0.
