The natural implementation for "quit, but only if new messages don't
come in" that occurs to me is:

 * note unread messages;
 * call disconnect on everything;
 * watch for new message signals;
 * wait for disconnected signals from them all;
 * check whether there have been new messages;
   - if so, stick a big "reconnect me" button in the buddy list (or
     somewhere explaining what's happened.
   - if not, quit away.

This seems much more straightforward than the "make a note of these
messages so that the next time we start we can stick them back on the
screen" method, and as Mark said is less confusing.
