#136: drag contact name and leave it on desktop

Comment (by strangeways):

 It seems like it might be enough to call pidgin_dialogs_im_with_user()
 with the appropriate PurpleAccount (which can be obtained from the account
 username and protocol name via purple_accounts_find()) and the username of
 the contact. Both can be encoded in a URI (say pidgin://prpl-
 name:acctname/username) which is associated with Pidgin in the OS. Both
 Linux and Windows support URL links which are then passed to appropriate
 registered handlers. However I *guess* placing the shortcut on the desktop
 itself is going to be DE dependent in Linux.
