#12798: SILC customizable names

 The SILC protocol plugin for pidgin contains a few unneeded information
 leaks. For one, it uses your computer account's login name when connecting
 without any option to configure that behavior. A slightly less
 catastrophic problem is it also transmits your local hostname. Although
 it's usually just "localhost," if it isn't that might be something the
 user wants to specify differently.

 So I went and patched the protocol plugin. I don't have monotone commit
 access though so I'll have to just attach the patch here.
