I thought it might be nice to make Facebook Chat contacts’ information dialogs
a little less sparse, so I had a quick crack at faking up their profile URL.
(It relies on JIDs being of the form "-<digits>@chat.facebook.com", where
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=<digits> is their profile URL. There
seems to be no way to get pretty https://www.facebook.com/<username> URLs.)

is my work in progress. It’s kind of tedious because right now the code that
builds the ContactInfo structure doesn’t have access to the connection object
to inspect the handle, or indeed to check whether we’re on a Facebook

The other option would be to artificially insert a <URL/> element into the
vCard, which might be neater maybe?

I’m not really working on this, it was just on a whim.
