It might be easier to listen to "row_changed" on gtkblist->treemodel,
look at the value in NODE_COLUMN of the changed row, and if it's a
buddy/contact, update the STATUS_ICON_COLUMN for the row from the
callback, with a check to avoid falling into infinite recursion because
changing the icon should also trigger the callback.
