I'm not so against WinPidgin, but I'd like to call it Pidgin. If we're
going to be a cross-platform app, then let's not make naming
distinctions that serve no real purpose. If you need to differentiate
it, then use "Pidgin on Windows" or "Pidgin for Windows" as appropriate.
If we need a separate IRC channel (which we probably do), then let's
call that #pidgin-win32 or #pidgin-windows and call it good.
