Summary: Ability to Remove Buddy List from Taskbar

Initial Comment:
This should be really easy to implement:

I've switched between Gaim and Trillian over and over again over the past 
couple of months. I've just switched back to Gaim, but one of the features I 
really miss from Trillian was the ability to not have the Buddy List be visible 
on the Windows taskbar while it's open (I realize you can already minimize it 
to the system tray.)

If this feature were to be implemented (hiding the Buddy List from the 
taskbar,) perhaps clicking the system tray icon would focus the Buddy List?

Does anyone else think this is a good idea?

It's my understanding that this plugin does not work with the latest Gaim

This behavior can be toggled with the "Extended Preferences" plugin.
There's an option to hide the Buddy List from the taskbar.
Just download the plugin from http://gaim-extprefs.sourceforge.net/ ,
install and be happy ;)
