Well, as I leave pidgin running constantly, usually for times greater
than a week, I think your second point has little bearing on me,
however, with a timeout, say perhaps and hour, which seams reasonable, I
can imagine it would be useful.
I don't like the changed formatting because it makes it harder to tell
my messages from theirs.
