It's almost like we need a FAQ entry. ;-)
Q: I just had a brilliant idea that I'm sure no one has ever thought
of before; I want to run libpurple as a web backend! How many
accounts can sign on at once?
A: This has been asked on devel at pidgin.im like 200 times since Pidgin
released. The answer is "a lot", "it depends on what you bolt on
top of it", or "we don't know, try it and tell us how it worked
out", depending on how long you let the thread go on.

for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
-- Cesare Beccaria, "On Crimes and Punishments", 1764
