No,the reason we didn't have a requires on tp-idle is that at the time

we should add the requires, I've got no problem with that.
I think the point that our default desktop should include a working
IRC client is a valid one, seeing as how IRC is one of our primary
methods of community support.
I've been able to use telepathy-idle successfully. I removed my

possible. A change will require appropriate rel-eng ticketing and so
