Comment(by mhamann):

 Now listen here, bub. You are ENTIRELY missing the point.

 Your users (who are TRYING to communicate and give back to the community)
 are asking for a relatively small feature change to a (mostly) great
 product. I'm not sure why you're so averse to giving us more control over
 the way we use Pidgin, but it's completely idiotic! All we're asking for
 is a customization that will allow us to make the software more USEFUL. TO

 This is *NOT* about you, which is clearly what you've turned this issue
 into. Axing the protocol icons is a STUPID STUPID STUPID idea.

 Don't use string matching--I agree, that's not a good solution. But for
 goodness sake, allow users to either accept the default icons, or
 supplement their own. Is that so much to ask?!?!

 If we need to open a separate ticket, fine. But don't be such narcissistic

 Misfeature, my shoe...
