Summary: Enhanced functionality of ignoriblocking while in chat rooms

Initial Comment:
1. A toggle switch.  When set to "off", ignored and unignored
users both appear on the room's roster (with the former noted
with an X), just as they are today.  When set to "on", ignored
users are not shown at all.

Reason: in many Yahoo chat rooms, bots outnumber real users
2:1, 3:1, or 4:1.  There seems little need to display them as present if 
they're being ignored.

2. On the same pulldown menu which now includes "info"
and "ignore" -- among other options -- include "block".

Reason: having identified a user as a bot, I'd like to be able
to remove it from my sight permanently.   Reason for keeping
"ignore" around as well: "ignore" is temporary, "block" is forever.

3. Add the ability to apply pulldown menu actions to users
by clicking on their handle in the chat itself.  (My guess
is that this may not be as good an idea as I thought it was
at first, but I'm throwing it in for consideration anyway.)

Reason: avoids the need to scroll the room roster to locate
the user.
