I think it would be a nice to add a feature where, when
you hold your mouse over a name in your buddy list,
that it displays a little popup with the person's
status message (be it online, away, DND, etc) whatever
message the person has set with their status. Similar
to how gaim and AIM for windows pops up their name,
idle time etc, this would just display their status
message.

I notice it already does this if you hover the mouse
over their name in the chat window, so I assume it
wouldn't be too much to add in the list window as well.

A hotkey to toggle timestamps in the chat windows would
also be a neat little feature as well.

Keep up the great work! Gabber rocks!!

    I wish.

    GtkCList does not support tooltips per item.

    Oh, and gaim does this by hacking together their own widget.
    I'm not going to use gaim's widget, but I'd accept a patch
    which added support for tooltips per item to Gtk::CList.
