These are not real concerns. Nor pidgin or gossip are part of the GNOME

though, but that's not the case.
And I'm not even stating these facts hold... which is a different
matter, but irrelevant for the discussion ongoing.

These could be interesting issues, *if* they are backed up. If you are
really against empathy inclusion in 2.22, I'd suggest you to focus in
