this automatically should go away soon.

I have not tried it, but if we replace pidgin with empathy, how is
empathy as an IRC client? Perhaps we could get rid of xchat all
if we go ahead.


Just tried it. Here's my experience with Empathy and IRC:

1. Edited accounts and created one for IRC and selected Freenode.
2. Enabled it and closed the account creation window
3. I got error message in buddy list window: "Network error" and a
button to "edit account"
4. I click the button and go into Accounts and the IRC entry is gone.
So it's not even editable.
5. Repeated this a few times. Seems as soon as it encounters an error,
Empathy deletes the account.
