I like this patch.  I might be in the minority, though, so it would be
good to hear from other devs before committing it.  Two questions
about the diff:
- Why do the buddy_username_label strings for some PRPLs have mnemonic
underscores while others do not?
- Maybe the trailing colon should be left off the string in case we
want to use the string in a sentence in the future?  The colon could
be added when it is displayed in the dialog.
