As everyone on the development list is aware, we have been over this "vocal
minority" argument several times.  I think it's counterproductive at this point
to continue to bring the argument up, or even hint at it with references to it,
when we've had significantly less than 100 users complaining and we know our
user base to be *at least* 100,000 users, most likely over a million.  It is
particularly counterproductive now that Sean has accepted a patch to put
protocol icons back in the buddy list.

For the record, I am opposed to the acceptance of the patch as a matter of
principle, but if it satisfies enough of the whining, so be it.  I'm tired of
arguing on an issue that was settled months ago.
