Summary: Buddy chat: cumbersome to invite 

Initial Comment:
It's far more difficult to initiate a buddy chat using gaim 0.49 on Linux than 
on AIM (version Netscape IM 4.3.2229) on Windows.

On AIM i select the friends i want to chat with, right click, and the menu 
shows "Send Buddy Chat Invitation".   Then i get a dialog where i can 
both open a chat AND invite multiple users w/ the same invitation message -- 
all from about two mouse clicks (and keystrokes if i don't like the default 

In contrast, gaim seems to want me to create the chat, then invite the buddies 
one by one.   I hope i'm missing something obvious, because this is VERY 

(Apologies if this is a duplicate -- i did search for "invite" 
&&  "chat" and didn't find an existing request, but i'm a 
little dubious that i'm the only one  who's bothered by this.   Maybe i just 
use chat more than most.)

I've started working on this.  I'm new to GTK and the Gaim
code-base, so this could take awhile.  Initially, I'm
looking to just enable multiple invites at the same time,
instead of pulling up the invite dialog for each one. 
Eventually it might be nice to support this better from the
buddy list, but right now I'm looking at the dialog.
