Initial Comment:
Plugin to incorporate facebook into pidgin. 

Save the file to the libgaim/plugins directory
Go to facebook and create a developer api key and  signature:
Edit the source file and change API_KEY_HERE and SECRET_HERE to your api key 
and secret. (Around line 36)
run "make" in the libgaim/plugins directory and copy the file to 
your plugins directory

When you load the plugin, you should get a notification telling you to go to a 
link. Click the link and login to facebook. Then click on Close in the 
notification window.
Now, if all goes well, you can right click on a buddy and click "Assign 
Facebook User". A list of users should come up. Pick who it is and click OK.
Now when you either get a tooltip of the buddy (keep the mouse hovered over the 
buddy) or get the user info (right click, get info) you will see a Facebook 

Some notes:
This is still in the works. I plan on adding some other features.
I really, really wanted to pull up a list of screen names from facebook, but 
the API doesn't let me. 
Neither I, or this plugin, are in anyway affiliated with facebook, pidgin, AOL 
or anyone else who might sue me. And I'm broke, so it's pointless anyway.
