Maybe it could be a Finch plugin? Other clients than Finch (Adium?) 
doesn't use it. For clients like Pidgin or Adium, it may not work as 
expected, especially when using custom themes.

It makes plugin list cluttered and hard to navigate, especially for the 
new users. I don't feel like the plugin for (example) changing the 
margin of buddy list is useful enough to present it in the first place 
for every user that installs Pidgin.
