On the other hand, using Gajim would still provide some advantages over
the libraries that I've checked so far: those don't provide additional
features such as encryption, and Gajim GUI would be used to have at hand
for more advanced features than just a chat (i.e., chatting from Emacs,
but using service discovery and such from Gajim).

AIUI, currently Gajim allows external programs (including gajim-remote)
to send messages, but allowing them to read incoming messages as well
would enable use cases like this.
