Also, such tools are not designed with privacy in mind. If you wanted
to ensure that there was no trace, you would need to do things like
disabling swap, during use, and an extended power down of the device
after use. You would also need to analyse Pidgin to make sure it didn't
use any temporary files.
Of course, there could be traces outside of the machine.
Even if I were sure of all the ways that information could leak, I would
be somewhat reluctant to design something for this purpose, as it is
likely to be misused.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
