[Adium-devl] Brief explanation on the flurry of "Purple" commits

Check out http://pidgin.im, the new home of the instant-messenger-
Gaim is henceforth "Pidgin" -- a really awesome name for an instant
messaging client. Note also that our ideological ties to Gaim have
strengthened in the name change... Adium's a duck, Gaim's a Pigeon,
and the text-based client based on libgaim is now "Finch". I for one
welcome our avian overlords :)
Through the name change, 'libgaim' has also gained life of its own.
The library which previously we were hacking together out of parts of
the Gaim source is now an independent entity (as of Gaim 2.0.0b6,
actually). Accordingly, since it is more than just the library
powering gaim, it has its own name now: libpurple. (This is a play
off 'prpl', which is what a libpurple protocol plugin is called).
This evening – a breath of free time at last, and I desperately
needed some sit-doing-nothing-important-but-something-productive time
– I moved all Gaim references in source code and in the file system
in trunk and adium-1.0 to Purple.
