Comment(by werdnanoslen):

 Recently fully switched from mac to arch, so I can no longer use
 [http://adium.im/ adium], a beautiful and highly configurable im client.
 I'm quite surprised that both empathy and pidgin don't have the ability to
 just have a plain list of contacts. I like my always-open programs like
 IM/cloud storage/music to be minimal, you see, and with adium I could
 simply hide the navbar and ALL buttons, make the background transparent,
 and tell it to only show itself if I hovered over a corner of the screen.
 The contacts' names (just text) were the only things visible, not even
 groups. I know who they all are, and I don't care if they're "Buddies,"
 "Contacts," or whatever other seemingly arbitrary grouping function tells
 me my friends belong under.

 Someone please provide an *option* to simply list all contacts without
