So unless someone have any strong objection, and/or want to fix up
pidgin to work properly, xchat should replace xchat-gnome instead of

I've voted for pidgin because it is available more or less anyway but in that case I agree to use xchat.
I see one left issue with xchat though:
It seems that one has to define --existing to the commandline to open an irc url from the commandline (or from a browser).

It would be very nice to have a wrapper (or a patched xchat) to autodetect that and if it's running reuse that session and otherwise open xchat.
Sounds reasonable?
