The Gwibber deps seem a bit crazy at the moment, especially since we're
not even utilizing the desktop couch service for anything else (afaik).
Opening and closing Gwibber will launch these services and leave them
running behind the scenes:
Private + Shared = RAM used Program
536.0 KiB + 582.0 KiB = 1.1 MiB couchdb (4)
2.2 MiB + 176.0 KiB = 2.4 MiB couchjs
12.9 MiB + 564.0 KiB = 13.5 MiB desktopcouch-service
20.1 MiB + 1.1 MiB = 21.2 MiB gwibber-service
32.8 MiB + 2.2 MiB = 34.9 MiB beam.smp (2) (erlang)
Until we "buy in" to this desktop couch vision, I don't think we should
ship Gwibber by default (let alone have it leave these services running
after it closes). It's also worth noting that Ubuntu is driving this
desktop couch vision, and will most likely be running
erlang/couchdb/desktop-couch out of the box on their desktops.
