Summary: Buddy Pounce by Alias

Initial Comment:
In the New Buddy Pounce dialog, it is not always easy
to remember everyone's screen name off the top of your
head-- especially if you use aliases for everyone.

Maybe, on the New Buddy Pounce Dialog, by the
screenname textfield, a radio button could
disable/enable whether or not the user would like to
create a new Buddy Pounce by actual screen name or by
the alias associated with them.

Behind the scenes, if a Buddy Pounce was created by
alias, when the Buddy Pounce was saved, a simple method
call to find the actual screen name of the alias could
be done.

That screenname, not the alias, would be passed to the
createNewBuddyPounce (or whatever) method, saving the
need for remodeling the Gaim event structure, of course.

Also, since aliases only exist in small quantity from
the user's buddy list, when a new Buddy Pounce is
saved, the dialog could check to see if that alias has
been registered and, if not, it could notify the user
that, "Whoops! The alias you're trying to use does not
exist! Please check your spelling." No more depending
on a buddy pounce that may have been set up with an
incorrectly spelled screen name!
