Off-the-Record support for Telepathy

by Ziemin for KDE

OTR is a cryptographic protocol with focus on instant messaging conversations, which provides strong encryption, peer authentication, deniability and perfect forward secrecy. Therefore it is a perfect solution to guarantee privacy, what nowadays is a crucial issue not only for political reasons. Despite being added to many communicators, Telepathy still lacks support for it.
