#12793: ICQ: improve authorisation window

 I would like to suggest one small improvement for ICQ protocol.
 When someone ask u for authorisation it is needed to check userinfo for
 details, to distinct spammers and your real buddies.
 Right now window looks like "<SPAMNUMBER> request for authorisation ..."

 If you try to copy <SPAMNUMER> via Ctrl-C, "Join a Chat" window appears.
 So u have to select number manually, then via RMB menu Copy it, then press
 Ctrl-I to open "Get user info" window, paste number there, search. A bit
 complicated process.

 Instead of this <SPAMNUMBER> could be just an active link and by clicking
 on it "Userinfo" window should appear.
