This is now in and I'm using it on Factory.  I had to disable all the
openSUSE patches of course[1] because all internal references to *gaim*
have been removed/changed.

If someone has time to go through them and see if they're simple to fix,
it would be a good thing.  I don't have that time I'm afraid - already
taken too much time away from my actual work with it :)

If we were able to get it in, replacing gaim it would be a good idea I
think, given the legal issues that gaim apparently has (IANAL of course)

[1] Actually, most of them were removed when I created the gaim-unstable
package because their functionality had been incorporated upstream.  The
major one is gnome-keyring support which, many of you will recall,
wasn't working anyway in gaim-unstable ;)
