Is a server oriented and stability-focused distro like RHEL that 
important when deciding Pidgin dependencies? I doubt that catering for
distros that make up less than 1% of the desktop Linux user base is a 
good trade-off when making developers' and the vast majority of users' 
lives easier.

IMHO, obviously ;)
