>Summary: \'Get info\' on \'authorisation request\' and \'user added you\'

Initial Comment:
One thing i realy hate obout GAIM is the way it acts
when somebody requests authorisation or adds you to
contact list. You can't directly request user info
(altrough gaim is capable to do it for one, that is not
in the buddy list) and you even can't copy the name/UIN
to the clipboard. The only way to acctualy figure who
wants to contact you is to manualy open browser, find
the apropriate web service and write the name/UIN by
hand. This anoys not only those, who use GAIM, but also
those who need to whait much longer for authorisation.

I think adding a way to get user info to authorisation
requests and "user added you" dialogs is of prime
importance to make them usable. Also it's good idea to
allow users to mark and copy the remote side name/UIN.
