Summary: Main Window appearance

Initial Comment:
Hey there... I'm having a problem with my "auto-login" 
feature, and while typing out the problem, thought I 
might come put a suggestion for the main window/loggin 
screens... And the feature change might help if this is a 
big bug, and not just some fritz on my machine... The 
Bug id# is 1071453 if you want to check it out.

Anways, on to the RFE...

In Windows, if you don't have any accounts set to auto-
loggin you get a screen very similar to the loggin screen 
of AIM. You know, with the username, password, sign 
on button.... etc... But that screen really really doesn't 
make any sense.
I don't know of a single user that uses gaim that ONLY 
uses one client... Isn't that the whole point of gaim, is 
to be able to be on several clients at once? So, this first 
window makes that impossible, and makes you go 
through more steps...

So, wouldn't it be easier, nicer to look at and use, if you 
had a window similar to the Accounts window? You 
know, the one where you can add, modify, delete, or 
sign onto your clients there? Seems this would help with 
the problem... And you could call the window Main 
instead of Accounts... Maybe add a button for Log Into 
All... or Disconnect From All, then a loggin button for 
each one, instead of the check... or maybe some other 
visual way of doing it.

Not saying that the current way is bad, it's not. But it's 
just not effective for what it's even there for.
I mean, why not skip that window all together and go 
straight to the buddy list.... 

That's my request. Hope it gets put in, but seems that 
all the updates lately have really been bug fixes and 
small things. Nothing major. 
I'm not complaining, I know how hard it is to work on 
this stuff, just in your free time, plus deal with all of us 
(your users) complaining and such. So, if someone has 
time to fiddle with this... even if it's not a developer, 
but someone who can program, then maybe you could 
offer an example and submit it... Can't screw it up that 
bad, could you?

Thanks guys and girls for all your hard work on this 
project! Keep it up!

There's already a patch but gaim developers also close not
applied patches, that's why you may have not seen the patch.
