Summary: custom IM window title/class

Initial Comment:
Currently, the IM window title is the screenname/alias of 
the person you are messaging with.  If you use a tabbed 
IM window, the title of the window changes, depending 
on the currently focused tab.

I would prefer to be able to override the title of the IM 
window w/ a custom title.

This seems to me to be a generally useful option when 
using tabbed IM windows (and an easy one to provide), 
but my reason for requesting this option is very specific. 
(only read below if you happen to care :) )

I just moved from KDE to WinXP Pro, but love the KDE 
virtual desktop system.  I like to "Glue" the GAIM IM 
window to all desktops, so that it always displays 
wherever I am working.  Under windows, using the 
virtual desktop system VERN, I can only "Glue" windows 
by title or class (this seems to be a common trait in all 
WinXp virtual desktop systems).

Since the title of the IM window changes, I cannot use 
title.  And if I glue by class, the buddy list window also 
gets glued, since they apparently share the same class.

Like I said, it's a very specific reason.
