#14447: XMPP contact not selecting available resource

 I have a contact who is signed in to 5 different resources with her XMPP
 (gmail) account.  This is going to be more and more common with people
 getting so many new devices, there's pidgin, gmail, tablets, phones, etc.
 all signed in at the same time.  Anyway, the contact shows as away,
 however when I hover over the name, I see that ONE of the resources is
 available.  This should make the entire contact show "available" status.
 In this case, it is the resource that Pidgin is signed into that is
 available, and which we are using to chat with, yet she still has the
 "away" icon displayed.

 As a side-effect of this, within a multi-protocol contact, the XMPP
 account isn't elevated to the top, since it thinks it is away, so instead
 it shows a yahoo account which we are not using.

 I'm not sure if this is happening because of the XMPP priorities, since I
 can't see what those are.  I think that no matter what, an "available"
 resource should always take precedence over an away/idle one.
