The canonical line is:

That's insane. I'm on the commits list. When anything interesting
happens that makes me want to update, I build a new snapshot. They're
not nightlies, they're manually built when it's worth my time to do so.
And anyway, as for your request, I don't think that's the correct thing
to do. I've been playing around in my head with some kind of
serv_got_buddies callback, where the prpl passes the core a list of
buddies/aliases/groups, along with a boolean saying if it's meant to be
a comprehensive list or not.
My reasoning here is that if it says it's comprehensive, Gaim can
compare it's local list and the remote list, and give you a dialog per
account of what's changed, and you can choose to accept/reject each
remote change. For a non-comprehensive list (I'm thinking ICQ's send
buddy list feature) then it can just prompt you to add any that aren't
on your list already.
This would be way better than the current hack for protocols with remote
blists, which is just to add each of the buddies as they come, leading
to annoying loss of information and duplicate adds, not to mention a big
waste of time sending all the buddies the server sends to us right back
