Summary: Allow choice of how to handle mobile contacts

Initial Comment:
Right now, Gaim seems to treat mobile contacts
(identified with a cellphone icon) as regular, online
buddies.  I think it makes much more sense to
prioritize these users below regular contacts, even if
they are marked away.  The order would then be:

1. Regular online contacts
2. Regular away contacts
3. Mobile contacts
4. Mobile away contacts (if they exist?)

This would impact sorting the buddy list by status and
also (most importantly) choosing which protocol appears
as the default for a contact.

The issue which brought this up is one of my contacts
has his AIM mobile account signed in, but also real
jabber and MSN accounts which are often marked away. 
No matter what I do, the contact defaults to showing
his AIM mobile account which I don't want to use.  

I'd love to see this fixed or an option to chose the
desired behavior at some point in the future.

I completely agree. Because I can never tell if someone
switches to mobile or off mobile, unless I look at the icon
on my buddy list or the little icon on the tab of their IM.
It would be great if that was added into the buddy state

another related issue: the buddy state notification plugin
NEEDS to be able to say something when someone logs out and
(implicitly) switches to mobile, and the aim info window
needs to show mobile status. currently guifications will
show an away of offline event, but otherwise the rest of
gaim, except the icon in the buddy list, tells you the
person is still online.
