Just to add that personally I don't really have any use for
the toolbars I mentioned.  It's just that I don't see the
point of adding a button just for the /buzz command.  I
suppose from a personal point of view, I would like to be
able to hide the toolbars.

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I was
wondering...  Why not expand this idea and have a macro
toolbar?  You could have a general toolbar that would apply
to all protocols and separate toolbars for other protocols.

The type of toolbar I was thinking of is like that used in
the gvim text editor.  The toolbar would basically be set up
and configured using plug-in like scripts.  gvim menu
scripts contains commands that could be described as
"AddButton" or something like that.

I don't know whether this should be just restricted to macro
functionality or not.  It could be argued if there is a
toolbar for macros, why not go the whole way and have a
toolbar for logging out, setting up accounts, file
transfers, etc...  That is basically a full featured toolbar
that you would see in a modern gui word processor.

At the moment I prefer the idea of just making the toolbar
only for macros.  Allowing the toolbar to do other things
feels at the moment like opening a can of worms.  Users
would then have more justification in asking, "Can we have a
toolbar button for X, Y and Z functions in gaim?"
