Empathy has some control-center shell integration as well for its
accounts configuration. Or perhaps it's an old version of the API. It
was primarily done for Meego Netbook.


Although I endorse design of the core components, I don't think it has
to require the component to exist in gnome-cc. Furthermore, this seems
like a fairly arbitrary limitation. Both major non-free desktops permit
applications to install control-center.
