I think Buddies is better than Pidgin because it describes most of the
items in the list (all if you extent its meaning to include "Buddy
List"), while "Pidgin" doesn't say much and seems to fly in the face of
the anti-branding stance in the GNOME HIG.

I don't think this is necessary and I'm opposed to removing the Help
menu, because 1) We should provide the Online Help link, and 2) it'd be
inconsistent with other applications.
