I think this is great! and just to keep the idea flowing how bout something like

Are you sure you want to remove buddy '[buddy name here]'?
- removing pounces (4 pounces stored),
- removing logs (12MB),
- block '[buddy name here]'

And I'd love to help code it, but until we have Gaim.NET (mono, please don't shoot me) or I get a little more familiar with non Visual studio coding, we are all safer with me keeping my little fingers out!

I reckon it would be cool if there was a single popup that said:

Are you sure you want to remove buddy?

with checkboxes (where applicable and unchecked by default) for:
- removing pounces,
- removing logs,
- blocking the buddy

Although I certainly don't want it enough to bother coding it.
