Maybe it would be nice to "auto-group" contacts based on the protocol?
And maybe (to address Francois' problem) it would be good to only allow 
ONE plugin for the same protocol at the same time and hide the other 
buddies (or combined with the autogroup feature, to just display them as 
one buddy with the offline one hidden. Iirc this is the default anyway).

This would allow the local alias to be cross used (the most annoying 
part of my manual merging).

The real benefit of the whole would be to allow new protocol version 
implementations to be tested on a wider base. You could just ship it 
marked as beta and let the end-user choose which one to select.
