New description:

 The text replacement plugin should be made to work when writing a status


 It looks to me from pidgin/gtkstatusbox.c:1255 that this is just an imhtml
 (and we apparently support gtkspell on it):

 Looking at pidgin/plugins/spellchk.c, in spellchk_new_attach, it appears
 that most of this is NOT dependent on conversations.

 It looks to me like we'd want to refactor spellchk_new_attach slightly to
 get another static function that would do the part of attaching to a
 GtkTextView. Then we'd need some way to alert plugins that a typing box
 was created. On that signal, the Text Replacement plugin could attach to
 the typing box.

 This should be fairly easy, but it's not going to be high on my personal
 priority list.
