You may want to catch up with Marv on this, but I'm suspecting this will 
need very careful coding with regards to Yahoo Chat Rooms and boot 
attacks. Any Yahoo room one stores in Pidgin would become a DoS vector 
for which there is very little recovery (in fact, with an 'always on' 
chatroom and a fully fledged boot attack there'd be no recovery).
