It would suck badly.  And it would be a lot of work to write.  At that
point, you might as well have a different client entirely.

In fact, the more contacts on each protocol I have, the MORE this would
suck, and the LESS I would want to have to deal with the fact that
*anyone* has multiple accounts.  Which is why we let you hide all that,
with contacts.
