2 - Framework for hooking scripts to respond received messages for various libpurple clients such as pidgin or finch
3 - This simple plugin just passes every single message received by any libPurple-based client (pidgin,finch) to sript(s) in user's home directory... So you can add various hooks to your pidgin or finch without need of writing and compiling own C plugin or messing with buggy perl plugin and restarting client after each change in plugin.
4 - There are already few sample (answer)scripts in purple directory, so you can check how easy it is to write some script for pidgin or finch...
