Account (dis|en)abling

I ran into something rather annoying and was wondering what the desired
functionality is.

Right now I'm working on Finch but am running Pidgin as I work.  In Pidgin
my MSN account is enabled.  I'd like it to be disabled in Finch.  But when I
enable it in Pidgin it gets enabled for both Finch and Pidgin; I've
confirmed this in accounts.xml.  So when I fire up Finch it kicks it off in
Pidgin, so I turn it off in Finch and renable it in Pidgin...and on and
on...  Do we want the UI to (dis|en)able accounts purplewide or only for the
specific UI it was changed in?  My vote is for just the UI it's in.  I know
I could pass a -c nothingdir but that's just ugly for nothing, IMHO.

On a side note.  When I enabled MSN in Pidgin it added settings for gnt-gaim
to my accounts.xml.  Also, Pidgin is refered to as gtk-gaim there also.  If
this is a bug and should be reported I'll do that.
