Summary: Stand Alone Conversation Window?

Initial Comment:
After thinking about it for a bit, I realized that the
main buddy list window isn't really necessary,
especially when you take full advantage of the tabbed
conversations feature and only use GAIM for AOL or
other simple IM methods.  The only time I ever click on
the main buddy list is to change options or open a new
converstaion (which ends up opening a tab in the
conversation window anyways!).

All of the buddy list menu items (preferences, etc..)
could easily be transferred to the conversation window
menubar.  The buddy list itself could easily be made
available by adding the buddy list display onto the
side of the conversation window, next to the
converstation itself.

This should probably be an option... "Combine Buddy
List and Conversation Window Mode", but I think it
makes the UI alot better, as absolutely everything you
need for basic IM protocols is right there at your

You obviously have to sacrafice having a large amount
of screen for the buddy list, but I could easily live
with that.

Here's a screenshot that should help you understand what I
am asking for.

I took this picture by simply docking the buddy list window
against the conversation window.  What I'd really like is
for the buddy list to be integrated into the conversation

If no GAIM developers want to deal with this, I'd be happy
to try my hand at creating a plugin to do this (although I
never really code in C... only Perl).  Is this possible to
implement as a plugin?
