log on/off notices

I scrounged around for an outlet to submit enhancement suggestions and this
is the only thing I found.  If I'm out of place, I apoligize.

I just moved from aim (thank god) to pidgin and there's one thing I'm really
missing.  Aim posts notices in the IM window for log on/off, direct connect,
etc.  I looked and looked and the best I could find is buddy pounce, which
is very useful, but not the same.  For what I want, pounce is too
effortful.  It's useful to know when a friend last logged on or off.  This
lets me know if my buddy who works night shift is probably awake, even if
he's not online, for example.  This feature in AIM is so useful and
effortless that I greatly miss it in pidgin, however I do not miss the ads
or bloated memory usage.  On that note, thank you guys, open source is truly
the best software and pidgin is very nice!
