Comment (by rahulsundaram):

 Here is a first crack at it


 creates new profile in .local/share/purple and certs and icons in
 move existing profile if one exists to the above directories
 autoaccept plugin will save data in .local/share/purple

 certs move isn't complete, prefs.xml needs to be moved to .config/purple
 and xmpp-caps.xml to be moved to .cache/purple.  that would need some
 refactoring of the purple write and read file functions to take a location
 instead of assuming purple_home to be the standard location for all the

 I will continue to work on it but I will happy to take in some feedback at
 this point.
