This is a general problem.  The protocol information has been lost
entirely for all buddies.  Thus reordering my contacts to set priority
is a real pain.  I have to wait for the tooltip for each, drag one
around, hope it dragged correctly (it sometimes doesn't), check with the
tooltip.  Rinse and repeat for each buddy I want to move. I don't like

I have often argued with people who wanted to replace the protocol icon
with the buddy icon that the protocol icon provides information.  Using
gaim in this way is bearing out the validity of that argument.
