[Bug 478178] Re: Empathy is almost impossible to set as a startup application

I have just thought of a simple solution that could make the problem of
not automatically launching Empathy less bad, based on my own behaviour
and expectations.

I suggest that MeMenu could launch Empathy if the user click on "Online"
or "Away", or any state other than "Offline". This way, on standard
startup the MeMenu would show that the user is offline (because Empathy
has not been launched) and if he wants to go online he just has to click
on "Online".

What do you think? It would be an Ubuntu only change which won't annoy
Gnome or Empathy. There is still the issue of choosing which IM client
to launch if Pidgin is installed for example.
