We should have a tool that simulates having many laptops collaboration with each other, so that we can catch scalability problems more easily.
I imagine the tool will open a number of Telepathy connections, either using Salut or Gabble. It will then have each connection create/join/leave activities at random, and open/use tubes within those activities at random.
The weakness I can see with such a simulation are that the network load will be unlike that generated by a number of real active laptops, but I think it should catch enough types of problem to be useful. We could also consider a distributed test tool.
