Hi everyone!
I'm new to this mailing list however i'm using Pidgin for a pretty long 
time mostly as ICQ & Yahoo client.
Recently i've implemented support for custom user icons (XStatuses) in 
libpurple (in the same manner as it is in QIP). XStatus shows in buddy 
list as a picture and it's possible to select personal XStatus for 
particular ICQ account as well (via "Set Custom Icon..." item in 
account's menu). My build could be downloaded at: 
According to different mailing lists this feature is highly desirable by 
many users so I'm looking forward to get it included into Pidgin.
