Evan wrote Adium's Facebook support himself in Objective-C.  Adium's Facebook
support is in no way related to libpurple.  The fact that Adium supports
protocols libpurple doesn't and even replaces our Bonjour implementation with
one of their own is completely irrelevant to this discussion.  And while the
GIMP has become more Windows-friendly it's not necessarily a model Windows
application that can serve its users better than a native Windows UI conforming
to the Windows user's expectations could.
