Possibly. Contributions are welcome, specially for integrating it directly into the code base.

Merging the OTR library instead of the plugin seems more interesting because the library is licensed under LGPL2.1, which is compatible with GPL2+. The plugin is GPL2-only which would turn the application as a whole into GPL2-only as well.

Can you help with this problem?
