On the second paragraph of it states that

It would be great if Pidgin could (optionally automatically) group contacts into a single contact base on their email address/JID/Passport when you have the same over different accounts. I use 3 XMPP account and MSN (plus several others, not relevant here) and I have many contacts that have the same email. When I add new contacts to all 4 accounts I have to MANUALLY group them, when this can easily be done by the Alias code - but the Alias function only works for already existing contacts and requires manual intervention too.

Can some dev accept this ticket and work something out? Thanks in advance
