I kinda like this idea, especially if the goal of the menu restructuring
is to allow for a slimmer window and not cut off any menu items. I have

Also, the Help portion could use some sprucing up, imo. Why not link to
the FAQ on pidgin.im? More importantly, but off-topic, some of the links
on the Help page lead to broken links.
