pidgin: enable iChat/Bonjour/presence account by default

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


Me filing this request probably is an indication that I'm losing my
mind ... ;-)

Anyways, pidgin supports the iChat/Bonjour/presence protocol to
support zeroconf instant messaging in the local network. For that to
work it listens on a tcp port and uses avahi for discovery of
others. The Bonjour account isn't enabled by default though. Users
have to manually add it which means barely anyone actually does
that. Kind of defeats the 'zeroconf' idea. So what about
automatically creating a Bonjour account on first start of pidgin?
