Summary: Adding contacts to a conversation.

Initial Comment:
It would be nice if it would be possible to add new
contacts to a 'IM" with one person, instead of opening
a new conversation as 'chat'. after all, an 'IM' is
just a 'chat' with only 2 people, and its a bit
inconsistent to treat it as something different.

also, its pretty annoying if the other person adds
someone, to have the entire conversation erased, just
because gaim wants to open a new conversation instead...

It's not quite true that an 'IM' is just a 'chat' with two
people. On at least aim and jabber they are entirely
separate things, so you can't just invite someone into your
IM conversation, but rather you need to create a chat and
all join it. There is a jabber proposal to handle
'converting' an IM into a chat, but I don't know if many
things support it yet. Further, currently gaim treats IMs
and chats differently and as such can't readily convert one
into the other. There has been talk of fixing the way gaim
handles this to make it possible but I don't think it's on
the table for anytime soon, what with all the other changes
going on.
