Comment (by sonnyka):

 '''Strong vote for re-opening this ticket''' and making priority a core
 feature of Pidgin/libpurple.

 1. The current add-on implementation is broken and it is unclear if it
 will be fixed. (see [1]). Consequence: No priority management is possible

 2. Other projects relying on libpurple have the same problem, e.g.
 Instantbird from Mozilla (see [2]). Consequence: No priority management
 will ever be possible w/o adding prio management to core.

 3. Multi-client environments have become increasingly popular due to smart
 phones. They can not be properly used together with Pidgin, as messages
 always end-up on the wrong device.
