Initial Comment:
Hi guys/gals.
I am new to Gaim as at 0.74, and congratulations to you
all.  I have already converted some others.
But, as a new user it took me a while to work out that
when adding an account that screenname was your user ID
for that protocol.
Wouldn't a better name be something like User ID, Email
Address, or Account Name, anything.  It took me 20
minutes of fiddling just to finally get my Yahoo
messaging online, and I am afraid a little less
patience = less users of your app.  (Actually, I did
give up but came back again and gave it another shot!).

AOL. I have the same experience when getting people to move
over to Gaim. "Screen Name" to me sounds like a display name
or alias, rather than /the/ ID.
