 Conceptually, it would be nice to be able to share your `.purple`
 directory between several machines, but this solution is something totally
 non-discoverable and won't be useful to anyone except the very few that
 look at to code and then mess with prefs.xml manually.

 It'd be better to make the action of setting the profile picture save the
 image that's selected in the buddy icon cache and to reference the path
 there instead of an arbitrary location on disk.

 Forward slashes aren't a problem.
