[Ubuntu-l10n-eng] Gaim/Pidgin's buddy

On the long-running Deleted Items thread[1] on the forums, somebody
expressed their dislike of Gaim/Pidgin's word "buddy"[2].

I propose changing buddy to something more en_GB, as buddy isn't really
used here.

Possibilities could be "friend" or "contact".

We should tell the Pidgin developers if we change anything, as all
Pidgin users should benefit from this.
