I don't understand what the ticket is about.
It is not a very good bug report.
The bottom line (which someone else mentioned) is that you're free to 
become a developer.
I don't think there is a stigma over forking.
I for one am happy with the direction pidgin has taken.
Maybe users should be allowed to vote on tickets like bugzilla so 
developers can see these "thousands of users".
