== Description ==

Piorun (=lightning in Polish) is going to be a client for semi-advanced users,
somewhat resembling XChat or TKabber, written using C#/Mono/Gnome# and integrated
with Gnome desktop. Main goal is to provide comfortable interface for dealing with
many mult-user chats and large rosters, with good keyboard navigation. I also want to keep the code
clean and extensible.

== Implementation details ==

*Piorun uses own XMPP library based on TcpClient, using packet-level synchronization with GLib's main loop. Control flow can be safely interrupted in any place to update GUI, which makes application more responsive

*XMPP stanzas are wrapped into c# classes

*Contacts (described by Jabber ID's) are first-class objects, they alone send and receive stanzas and do many other things
