When you have multiple accounts active, pidgin removes the per-protocol
status and uses a generic set instead.  You can still specify individual
account statuses by clicking the "New Status" item from the status menu.

For Pidgin this will work for XMPP as long as your server supports
multiple connections and both connections have unique resources.  If
both of your clients of the resource set to the same thing, this will
generally prevent the account from being signed on in two places at once.

I am not sure whether GG supports multiple connections.
