Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

There has been some discussion on including empathy in future releases
of Ubuntu instead of Pidgin.  To replicate Pidgin's functionality,
Empathy should include IRC support to avoid the inclusion of extra cruft
(e.g. XChat) for which there is no room on the LiveCD.  Therefore, I
think that empathy should recommend telepathy-idle to support IRC.

Thanks to Chris Rogers for the suggestion of the appropriate backend

Description: High-level library and user-interface for Telepathy
 Empathy consists of a rich set of reusable instant messaging widgets, and a
 GNOME client using those widgets. It uses Telepathy and Nokia's Mission
 Control, and reuses Gossip's UI. The main goal is to permit desktop
 integration by providing libempathy and libempathy-gtk libraries.
 libempathy-gtk is a set of powerful widgets that can be embeded into any
 GNOME application.
 This packet contains the empathy IM application and account manager.
