I don't know if you know this, but both Sugar an Gnome share
identical code for collaboration and communication in the form of
Telepathy dbus api (http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/) The only
difference is that at the time their presence service was not so
advanced, so Sugar has its own. Telepathy has since really mattured
though, and mission control 5, that includes an advanced presence
service that hopeffuly some folks are porting to latest sugar,,
