Good, but it's still not supporting the sound theme spec, right?

I've no stomach to follow everything that happens in the Pidgin
project, but it looks like you designed your own format. What would
you think if Sun decided to implement their own format instead of
using the standard ODF?

I would think that's wasted effort, and not playing well with others,
and that's exactly what I think of libpurple's own format.
