I think it'd be cool if there were no 'standard' name for it, but
rather each prpl specified what fields it wants and what their names
are and how to store them in accounts.xml. It'd make most sense to me
for ICQ to ask for a UIN and AIM to ask for a Screen Name and MSN to
ask for an E-mail address and XMPP to ask for a JID, but other people
disagree with me.
