My case is that I have lots of buddies who use more than one protocol,
and I need to know which account I'm talking to. There are many
reasons for this, such as the person may have one protocol signed in
at home and one at work, in which case I'd need to know that I'm
writing to the location they're at.

Another reason is that the functionality and even emoticon text
replacements are different for each protocol.
