#13947: Ability to create 1000+ accounts
Reporter:  gugu  |        Type:  patch            
  Status:  new   |   Component:  libpurple        
 Version:        |    Keywords:  accounts spectrum
 Currently all accounts stored in plain list.

 Spectrum needs to support up to 50000 active accounts. In this case
 purple_accounts_find and purple_accounts_new are extremely slow, because
 they iterate over the list and make a lot of CPU usage in a loop.

 I added accounts_hash variable in addition to accounts with type

 Now purple_accounts_find can work quickly for any number of accounts
