I definitely think we should add a prpl->set_nickname() callback, or some
such, since it's pretty difficult for UIs to set the MSN friendly name, or
format your oscar screen name.  I'm not sure if we should wait until 3.0.0 to
do this, or if we should do it earlier.  Ad we would probably want to handle
other getters and setters on a case by case basis.
