Not from pidgin's point of view. Even if you did, users could still 
delete and modify the logs after the fact, so this really is something 
that should be done server-side if complicance or data retention are 

If you just wanted to enable logging for user's convenience (so people 
stop calling the helpdesk to inquire), with a bit of creativity you 
could whip up a login script that would set the appropriate flags in the 
XML, but this is not something that's formally supported or documented, 
and of course you'd have to watch new pidgin versions carefully as the 
logging settings in the config file could change at any point in the 
future, without notice.
