Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

On previous versions of Ubuntu pidgin has acted as a ok irc client for
new users who were after help with their new system.

However in karmic with the inclusion of Empathy we lose this feature.

I believe the simplest solution would be to include either gnome-
xchat/xchat or telepathy-idle.  Telepathy-idle just adds irc capability
to empathy, this would once again give ubuntu a default irc client.

This is a feature that seems to be sadly lacking considering that the
other desktops all have this capability.
