[Adium-devl] Moving chat transcripts to ~/Documents/Adium

My two reasons for proposing the move:
1. Despite our hopes to the contrary, it does appear that Spotlight
continues not to index the transcpits in ~/L/App Support
2. I feel like my mom is more likely to back up her transcripts if
they are in ~/Documents and she's doing a backup than if they are in ~/
L/App Support. Time machine may make this less relevant, though.

I've looked through Fire's FireMD mdiimporter and can't figure out
what is being done to allow indexing from ~/Library/Application
Support. Could you point it out please?
