Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

There's a lot of user info in ICQ: nickname, real name, gender,
birthdate, spoken languages and so on. In Empathy, contact information
dialog has only ICQ number and nickname.

This wouldn't disturb me mostly, but when I set up Empathy to my ICQ
account, half of my contact list is displayed as just ICQ numbers, not
even nicknames. I have no idea who is who there.

It would be nice to get nicknames to be displayed somehow first, because
that's what Pidgin does, and because there's no way to use Empathy until
it's done. And second, it would be even better to enhance Contact
Information dialog a little bit. It would help, for example, when one
decides whether to approve authorization request.
