I'm assuming you've already fgrep'ed the source for
purple_buddy_iscons_set_for_user and read the docs found at . In
that case I would figure out how the buddy icons work from how they
are set originally.

If you don't understand why *account isn't "mymsnaccount at hotmail.com".
then you need to take a quick trip to a C tutorial. The declaration
for *account is 'PurpleAccount *account', making it a pointer to a
PurpleAccount, not a string.
