Assuming it's not a hard dependency (which it isn't in Pidgin), and
that it has options to turn on and off, I see no reason why it's
better as a plugin than built in. And I think this is a feature so
fundamental it deserves to be in the core.

However, the real reason I'd be against this being a plugin is that
gstreamer will in the not-too-distant future be a (n optional)
dependency of libpurple, instead of Pidgin itself to accomodate -vv

Completely unrelated note: since we're already doing certain neat X
tricks to make running in an xterm more pleasurable, it would rock if
we could follow the notification area spec (without linking to
anything more than xlib) and put notifications in there when we get
new messages.
