Thank you, and Richard, too, for pointing out the needed reading.  I  
had indeed not read the monotone manual.  I have read  
UsingPidginMonotone and MonotoneLimitations from Pidgin Trac and  
DaggyFixes (as recommended in UsingPidginMonotone) from the monotone  
wiki.  I thought based on this material that I had a sufficient grasp  
of monotone and had treated the Pidgin pages as a sufficient crash  
course.  Clearly this left at least one (and probably multiple) gaps  
in my knowledge.  I'm not sure when I'll have time to read the full  
monotone manual, but I won't be asking another monotone related  
question in a public space until I have.

No offense taken - I do appreciate this being a concluding side note  
rather than the theme of your explanation.  I was laboring under the  
paradox of inquiry and hadn't realized that there was a body of  
highly relevant material beyond UsingPidginMonotone in the manual.
