I personally am not wild about the name of that directory. Of course 
there's a cost to Empathy in changing the name, in that it basically 
would then have to support both in perpetuity. Hence why I thought I'd 
pipe up, to let Pidgin only have to support one path (pattern) rather 
than needing to figure out a migration strategy to a common path.
