Yes an overall Pidgin Plus plugin would make a nice project for GSoC. Not just sound.

Hello Everyone,

I'm a student interested in contributing to Pidgin for a GSoC project. I've used Pidgin for MSN quite a bit recently and I've thought of a few ideas that I'd like to implement.

1. MSN status messages. - getting/setting status messages in Pidgin. As far as I know, Pidgin currently doesn't support these.

2. MSN Plus sounds support. - make a plugin that allows "MSN Plus" sounds to be heard and possibly also sent in Pidgin.

Then again, I've also heard that MSN projects are not exactly a high priority for this year's SoC. Still, I really miss having the status messages or an MSN Plus sounds plugin and I'd love to be able to implement them over my summer break.

Any feedback is appreciated!
