I'd like to see all the big SoC branches merged for 3.0 (and merging in GObjectification *and* everything else would probably be...horrible).  Toward that, I threw together a wiki page with a brief interview of the big branches and their status (which was mostly placeholders when I made it).

I debated posing this question here, but I saw the wiki page and thought 
I'd bring it up. As an avid user of Adium on the mac, I've noticed one 
thing about the IM windows and being webkit based, is that all of the 
IMs are css controlled and are /virtually/ html. The one thing that 
bothers me, and I've been working on finding a decent way to fix it 
myself (theme), is that when you try to copy/paste, most of the themes 
that Adium has are not copy/paste friendly and wind up bringing too much 
information, or the formatting is way off and it looks weird. The only 
thing I want to make a point of, is when the WebKit switchover is made, 
that the default theme behave much like the current pidgin base theme 
does, in that it's inline and the formatting during a copy/paste doesn't 
go...awkward for a lack of a better word.

I'm sorry for the hijack, I just wanted to voice opinion/concern about that.
