Summary: simple option to login

Initial Comment:
Instant messaging client like GAIM must provide simple options to login, but on 
ordinary user simply can’t initiate his action to login into a particular 
protocol with the currently available design of GAIM. Every user should define 
his account by accessing - Add Account module and request to enter login 
credentials and also several parameters in few cases. The GAIM design must be 
simplified by providing the design, where user can login into particular 
protocol without any adding account

gaim is not designed for multiple people to use on the same system
account, gaim is not designed to be a kiosk solution, it is designed to
allow a person to usefully manage/access their IM accounts. Adding accounts
is not difficult, nor surprising in multi-account clients, anything else
would actually be more confusing and would lead to people not realizing
gaim support multiple accounts (the history of gaim so far bears this
theory out).
