Summary: Ability to better handle running multiple instances.

Initial Comment:
If gaim is already running, and the user accidentally
launches a second copy of gaim, it would be nice to
bring the currently running copy of gaim to the
foreground, instead of launching a second copy of gaim.
Launching a second copy of gaim causes issues with
protocols like yahoo messenger, where only one
concurrent login is permitted. After launching the
second copy of gaim, the user is now left with two
copies of gaim, unsure of which copy is still logged
into yahoo messenger. Yes this is a minor issue, and
its the user should be smart enough to not launch a
second copy of gaim...but hey, most gaim users are
human ;-)
