"Rewrite" is a bit harsh. We don't leverage Telepathy. But then, when we
wrote the softphone, that wasn't an option.

Also, we're looking for a very large public - so from the start we were
designed as cross-platform & standards-based. Telepathy has
traditionally focussed on Linux, and up until recently wasn't available
on Windows (not sure if that's changed). It's entirely possible to make
a connection manager (like the Sofia SIP connection manager) for phapi,
  our SIP abstraction layer, or/and to adapt the front-end to use the
Telepathy API to send messages through back-ends which are available.
