#651 group many addys under 1 name

Some Future Release

a single person might have more than one IM address, right now i
have too have a single line for each address that person has.

It would be a helpfull interface improvment to be able to group
that 1 persons many addresses under one name.

example Joe has a ICQ, 2 MSN's and a Yahoo adress, that is 4
items listed on the buddy list. Now with this improvment you
have one line called Joe. he has the settinsg that says Joe has a
ICQ account, 2 MSn account and a yahoo account. they obviously
have a priority list of which to try first and drop down box for you
to choose what service to chat with.

other logic
If Joe contacts you from a particular service then the responces
and current chat is handled accross that service.

    We already support this. It is called "buddy clustering". To use it, simply
    turn on the option in the Buddies Window pref pane, and then set up the
    various items in your buddy list for the same user to all have the same
