Binary package hint: empathy

I think there should be an option to remove the empathy icon from the system tray: this was possible in pidgin and many pidgin users will switch to empathy when karmic releases.
A similar problem is the fact that the icon starts flashing when I start empathy because of an identification message. I heard other people complain about this, it requires too much attention, I guess. :) System tray icons should not flash imho.
