Gnome 3 added integrated support for online accounts including XMPP. As we already have a DBUS connection via GApplication API we should be able to use Gnome Online Accounts for XMPP login, which is needed to access online game catalogs and establish a connection with a game service.
To complete this task, send an XMPP message to a test account whenever GnomeSoy starts. Future GCI 2013 tasks do much more with XMPP, for this we just need the basic connection working.
