Once this is done, I would be grateful if the patch at #2629 were
merged. It is pretty small; basically an implementation of the Pidgin
docklet/tray icon using GtkStatusIcon instead of being X11-specific.
This makes it possible to compile Pidgin with GTK for OS X.

(Of course the GtkStatusIcon implementation can also be enabled by
default and used on any platform with GTK 2.10 or newer.)
