I have created in monotone.  Let the mergefest begin!

From the above and Sadrul's e-mail, here's a quick punchlist of the huge tasks:
  * Kill deprecated API.
  * Merge im.pidgin.soc.2008.masterpassword
  * Merge im.pidgin.soc.2007.remotelogging
  * Merge im.pidgin.cpw.nader.asynclogging-3 if it's acceptable
  * Change PurpleContact to PurplePerson
  * Change PurpleBuddy to PurpleContact (existing PurpleContact has to be
renamed first!)
  * Finish struct hiding
  * Kill off server.[ch].  We've been wanting them dead for years.
  * Ideally merge im.pidgin.soc.2009.webkitmessageview

Note that each one of those items will leave a mess to clean up after.
