Summary: Improvements for mobility

Initial Comment:
For Mobile Users
<b>This suggestion goes in line with previous feature 

To improve the user experience for mobile users using 
GAIM for Instant messaging
 I suggest the following improvements/changes to the 
application characteristics.
 While conecting.
 If one account does not manage to connect it should 
not affect the other accounts, 
 this is important in environments where you have partial 
connectivity. Partial connectivity means that you have 
access rights to one service but not the other.
 An account should notifiy the user in a descreate way 
the connection status, the present way of throughing a 
number of windows that are not removed, causes a 
situation where the mobile user finds himself either 
closing windows all day, or having the screen filled with 
 When connected.
 For the mobile user, loosing and regaining network 
conectivity is "normal", this means that connectivity is 
not "always on", but rather...mainly on.
 A huge improvement would be to less drastically notify 
that connectivty is poor, during the first XX seconds of 
lost connectivty the client could maintain the previously 
known connection status of friends...but gray them 
out..after XX seconds connectivity would be concidered 
lost, and the client would go into... "waiting for 
connectivty mood".
