I would very much like to be able to make subsets of away messages.
The subset could be chosen like a regular away message, but
whenever someone IMs and Fire is to automatically respond, it would
randomly choose one of the several different away messages within
the selected subset. This would be most particularly useful when the
person on the other end is sending repeated messages -- this way,
each time Fire automatically replies to remind them that the user is
away, they can receive a different message.

Additionally, if this feature gets implemented at all, it would also be
extremely cool to have an option to send the messages of that subset
in the order you've arranged them. (That way, your first message
could be an innocuous "I'm away" sort of thing, and with each
subsequent message, you could get more vicious: "Look, I'm not
here right now. Stop messaging me." ... "Really, I mean it. Go away."
... "Can you actually read, or are you just randomly banging on the
keyboard?" ... and so on.) And if THAT feature would be
implemented, it would also be nice to have the option to loop back to
the beginning of the subset, or simply stop sending automatic replies
to the person in question.

Thank you for your consideration. Fire is without a doubt my absolute
favorite application, even before Apple's own, and I only hope it gets
even better.
