Love this plugin. Have always used CTRL+A (show
accounts) and CTRL+P (show preferences) that are
default gaim shortcuts, but these only work if the
BuddyList is in focus. So being able to skip that step
with hotkeys is great.

I'd love the ability to enable my hotkeys as toggles. ie

press the key combo once shows the Preferences
window, then press the key combo again closes the
window.

Thanks.

    Hm, I could have explained more simply by asking the
    Preferences and Accounts hotkeys work as toggles like the
    Buddylist hotkey currently does.

    I wonder why this was only implemented for the buddy list...
    is it not possible for the others?

    Recently it looks like it becomes possible to make "show accounts" and "show preferences" as toggle.

    Excellent! BTw, thanks for bringing this out so soon after the Pidgin final release. Great work!

    My only issue now is that the Plugins interface has been given its own dialogue - distinct to the Preferences window. The only reason I used hotkeys with CTRL+P so regularly was for fast access to my plugin configurations in gaim. The new Pidgin design has sort of crippled shit for me, since most of the options in Preferences have gone anyway. :(
