Marcus is correct--if we replace GtkImHtml we have to bump to 3.0.0--even if we
don't kill the API, we're changing behavior in such a way that it *will* break a
number of existing plugins.  I'm not against doing this, but there's a LOT of
stuff we really do need to do for 3.0.0, ideally including finishing
gobjectification of libpurple, merging in the keyring stuff, etc.
