I don't think I followed this... Are you saying that certain items in
the buddy list are "broken"?  What indicates that an item is broken?

Plugins don't really have access to internal oscar data structures.
But if this is something that should be done for all AIM and ICQ buddy
lists then it seems like the most appropriate place to do it is in
aim_ssi_cleanlist() in libpurple/protocols/oscar/family_feedbag.c
