Comment(by hobarrera):

 Ooops, I was not aware WikiFormatting was necessary for line jumps, and I
 can't edit the previous comment;

 As a note for whoever implements this, this requires moving:

 certificates/ -> $XDG_CACHE_HOME/purple/certificates/[[BR]]
 icons/ -> $XDG_CACHE_HOME/purple/icons/[[BR]]

 logs/ -> $XDG_DATA_HOME/purple/logs[[BR]]
 smileys/ -> $XDG_DATA_HOME/purple/smileys[[BR]]
 blist.xml -> $XDG_DATA_HOME/purple/blist.xml[[BR]]
 xmpp-caps.xml -> $XDG_DATA_HOME/purple/xmpp-caps.xml

 Everything else already in .purple should move into

 The default fallbacks (in no enviroment variable are set) are:
 $XDG_CACHE_HOME -> $HOME/.cache[[BR]]
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME -> $HOME/.config[[BR]]
 $XDG_DATA_HOME -> $HOME/.local/share

 I hope this helps, here's the spec in case you prefer to read it:[[BR]]
