           Summary: connections' object path etc. should contain uniquifying
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-idle
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: will.thompson at collabora.co.uk

If I connect to Freenode as "wjt", then rename myself to "resiak", the object
path of the connection will still contain "wjt at irc.freenode.net".  If I then
try to make another connection as "wjt", it will spuriously fail because of an
object path clash, even though it should succeed.

Thus we should include some kind of uniquifying string in the account name
component of the object path – perhaps just the hex value of the
IdleConnection *.
