I've been using for a long time a custom version of gajim in order to make it interact with wmii. More precisely, I have, in my wmii status bar, a dedicated log zone where I print notification messages such as new incoming emails or text received from gajim (with different colors if special words were cited, etc.).

I recently decided to throw away my custom gajim and use python and dbus to achieve the same goal in a cleaner way. A very basic version can be found in the simpled project. As of now, the only way to get the code is trhough mercurial:

hg clone http://www.logilab.org/hg/simpled

The source file is named gajimnotifier.py. In this file, you'll also find a version sending messages to Ion's status bar.
