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


I've voted for pidgin because it is available more or less anyway but in

Yes, same here. Also to free up some space on the CD.

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?

I don't really see an issue with having to specify --existing since it
will open up a new xchat session if one doesn't exist. And having it
reuse an already running xchat is much nicer than starting a second
instance.
I don't think a lot of people have to worry about the command line URL
at the end of the day?
