I think Jorge is saying that showing the full date is not enough clue
that the message is an offline message. What about something like:

"Buddy" sent you these messages while you were offline:

When gtkconv sees the first non-offline message, it will draw a <hr> to
separate those from offline messages. We can go more fancy when Sean's
renderer stuff is ready, but this seems good for now.
