This is planned. The infopane is supposed to have the same tooltip as
the buddy list does. For chats, this will contain the topic.

Then turn off tabs. Or the infopane. They're optional*. ;) Perhaps I
should bring back status-icons-on-tabs, although I'm growing to enjoy
life without them, and just use the fact that if you're bothered by
information redundancy, you can just turn the thing off. ;)

The protocol icon will go the the left of the buddy icon, the same way
it does in a buddy's blist node.

I don't understand what this means.

The idea is that right-clicking will bring the same menu you get when
your right-click in the buddy list. Left clicking should bring the
list of available buddies, and replace the Send To menu.
