I log in and see a new icon on the menu "GAIM"
I go into the package system and click on the GAIM icon and it says:
Installed yesterday 13:45:56 by Bill Foreman [bforman]
Then I know that it was my flatmate that installed it and not some
random spyware thing. It's not high on my priority list, but it could be
a good idea. We can also store some of the other metadata stuff cached
from mugshot (popularity etc) that we can't get from the backend.
