#4727: Profile Support

 It seems like libpurple could benefit by allowing different login
 profiles. The benefits would be seen in two situations:

 1. Two people using the same computer, same login session, and therefore
 the same libpurple client. No longer would they have to manually select
 the accounts which belong to them, they would simply be able to select
 their personal profile which would group all of those accounts.

 2. One person using a libpurple client has different accounts for work
 related communication and personal communication. It would make it much
 easier to login to a simple "Work" or "Home" profile rather than select
 each account separately.

 I feel like this fits into the philosophy of Pidgin in the sense that all
 accounts are seamless.  Not only do you have a protocol independent buddy
 list, but you can also have a protocol independent login. Any thoughts?

 May also be releated to #4069.
