Contact options

Greetings, everyone. I was looking through the User Control Panel, and I found that as far as adding contact information on one's profile goes, most of the options are either old or only supported on Windows or Mac OSX, such MSN. Yes, it is possible to go sign up for an AOL or MSN account and use it with Pidgin, but that seems to defeat the purpose. Would it be possible to replace these fields with more popular services such as Skype or more Linux friendly services like Ekiga?

It's just something I've been thinking about.
Thanks.

moreover Pidgin keeps all account passwords in text, non-encrypted form :evil: . because of security reasons it shouldn't be used at all.
