I don't get this. User should or shouldn't care about the screen. Frankly i
don't use this thing but as i tried it to check it, whenever i click on a
buddy inside an entity it always opened the same window and it remain the
same for all buddies part of that entity. So whenever i click on a
different buddy , the window would respond for that person now, while still
showing chat session for other buddies inside the entity. What i get from
aggregation is that logical entity would have all the logs for the buddies
inside it, similar to what when ones right click on an entity and it shows
entire logs for all contacts.
