Sort by Log Size

Hello Everyone,

This is in regards to the recent log subsystem change made to 
incorporate the new blist sorting mechanism of "recent activity".

While the newer sorting mechanism might be good at what it is meant to 
do, I find myself completely agreeing with Jim's initial arguments. The 
recent log activities has shuffled the sorting order a few times. As a 
person who likes his contact list to be sorted "relatively the same" 
(minor changes over a long period of time is still acceptable), I find 
myself missing the older "sort by log size" functionality. I did sit 
down last night and hacked a patch to enable both, sort by log size and 
sort by recent activity. So, I guess my question is, are there any 
fundamental objections to integrating both the features into Pidgin?
