Can we just change all these back to /gaim/gtk and gtk-gaim?  That should make
things work again with the least amount of work.  My guess is that they were
unintentionally changed during the sed'ing.  I vote for dealing with
purple_prefs_rename()ing everything later.

That sounds good to me.

I don't have a clear picture of what you mean for these two, but they sound
like a good idea.  I say go for it.

This sounds like more work for the translators with little gain.  But I guess
it would allow Adium to re-use our libpurple translations?  Sounds good to me.
