#658 add ability to "cancel" authorize buddy requests...

Anyone who has been using ICQ for any length of time probably
knows that scammers and pr0n-site people use automated bots
that send out "okay to add as buddy" requests.

These pop up modal sheets under Fire with two choices...
"authorize" or "deny".

Trouble is, clicking "deny" sends the deny message back to the
bot. And some bots repeatedly send out "okay to add as buddy"
requests after getting denied. This also tells the script/bot that
you're a live person behind that ICQ account.

It would be very easy to add a third button to this modal sheet.
Either a "cancel" or "dismiss" button, which would get rid of the
sheet without sending a response back to the bad guys.

Hope this helps!
