Is there any way to integrate pidgin into the Me Menu, or any other chat applet?

My main problem is that everyone I know uses AIM, which Empathy jokingly supports.

Or is there a way to fix Empathy to make it show which AIM users are mobile?

I think Pidgin is already integrated in MeMenu. Simply go to Tools -> Preferences then set "Never" to "Show system" tray icon in the Interface tab.
