A nice feature would be to instantly be able see user
activity in the userlist. That would be done by
displaying an icon (for example a light bulb) next to
the nicknames who have talked (or made an action)
within the last 5 minutes. This icon could also dim out
to indicate a degree of idling ; for example fully
visible if the user has talked withing the last minute,
80% visible if is last action occurred between 1 and 2
minutes ago, 60% between 2 and 3...
This would be an interesting feature no other client has.
Nice job on X-Chat, thanks for your work.
