This will only be an issue for people using the betas, as when we go 
2.0.0, settings will get read out of .gaim, but stored to .pidgin. 
Actually, we should discuss that.  With the advent of libpurple, do we 
want to store stuff in a .purple directory?  Most (all?) stuff in there 
is set up to be ui-agnostic, and appropriately tagged when it relates to 
a specific UI.
