Several icons for several connections on the same protocol

Yes, I also face this problem, as there are not enough icons to 
uniquely identify an account, I end up seeing a mixture of all ids in 
my gtalk accounts and yahoo accounts in a single list and I don't know 
which belong to which account.

It would help if you could sort the list of ids in main window, on the 
basis not just protocol, but also on the chat id.

yahoo does provide groups of ids, so I have named each id's account in 
different groups so that I can know then, but gtalk doesn't provide 
any such feature in original gtalk to group ids, so there is no 
purpose using pidgin's grouping in that.
