You can't check if the buddy is online unless the buddy is in your buddy
list, right? If the buddy is in your buddy list, there's probably no
point in sending a challenge?

I am not sure how best to solve this, libpurple does not have a way to
notify the caller when a prpl operation fails, so the prpl can only
write to the conversation when something goes wrong. Maybe trap the
conversation signals and hide it?
