Then I'm thinking of other issues, or issues that have long since been
fixed. And unfortunately I don't recall the details, maybe Luke will.

And I have no problems automatically filling in a Domain/Server box with for Google Talk accounts, etc. (I didn't think we should have
removed from the XMPP prpl) and think doing that sort of thing
should avoid virtually all of the problems we might have with multiple
entry areas.

However, given our current lack of an XMPP default (and the fact that
Google Talk jumps to XMPP) moving to a single entry box is likely to
confuse people who attempt to only put in a username in for an XMPP
