What about this: We add this dialog only for the upgrade path and take
it out after a few versions. For new users (i.e. zero accounts), we just
add the account before we show the accounts dialog. Thus, they get a
dialog with one account (Bonjour) in it. In this way, everyone would be
informed that this account was created, without the the need to maintain
a special UI over the long-term.
