+== Better buddy search ==
+Problem: In order to search for a buddy, his associated group should be open in gtk buddy-list.
+I am not sure how exactly this can be done or what the challenges involved are. I chatted offline with Mark Doliner and it looks like, this might need a lot of change to actual handling of Buddy Lists! Student can maybe explore the following:
+ * Look at how similar projects e.g. Adium, implement buddy search.
+ * Chalk out how this feature could be implement or how much effort this would involve.
+ * Maybe think about alternatives, such as separate search area (?) or maybe a plugin (?).
+This is very half baked and should probably have some refining if students wish to work on it.
