I've been looking into adding another way to distinguish between gaim
connections. When you have multiple IRC connections, all using the same
nick (I generally connect to around 6 networks), it's hard to tell them
apart in the Accounts list, and the Send As pulldown. Modifying the
gaim_connection struct isn't an option, because it's not assigned to the
aim_user until an actual connection is created; so, the aim_user struct is
the way to go, I think. I'm looking for suggestions on how to cleanly do
this; the gaim framework would have to be told where to grab this server
string from, would have to be told that there is a server string (for
something like OSCAR, it's not necessary; for IRC, perhaps use
OPT_PROTO_SERVER_DISPLAY as a protocol option to tell it to display the
server), and would need to have something initialize this string after
.gaimrc is read, but before the Accounts screen could be displayed.
Also, I'd appreciate inclusion/feedback on my irc autojoin patch; this is
the one thing keeping me tied to 0.59.
