Hi Etan
In the code below the controlk shows up right below the menu, however it doesn't function.
I see errors about casting GtkVBox to GtkWindow in the debug window.
static void
conversation_displayed_cb(PidginConversation *gtkconv)
   purple_debug_info(PLUGIN_NAME, "conversation_displayed_cb...!!!!\n");
   qc_create_ui(gtkconv->tab_cont->parent->parent, 1);

Sorry about that.  If it's possible to add them to the right of the top menu that would be best.
If that's not possible then an area below the topmost menu, or an area at the bottom of the tab container.  
In all cases this area for my controls would be present regardless of which tab was in the foreground.
