Summary: screenname formatter

Initial Comment:
i saw a cool screenname autoformatter for the AOL AIM
client that automatically reformatted the screenname by
sending multiple reformatt commands in succession so
the person's sn appeared to be scrolling uppercase and
lowercase. this seemed pretty easy to code and looked
really cool. anyone up to it?

Because being completely annoying, this also wastes
bandwidth.  I have no idea how big the packet that you
formatted your sn is, but you have to send it to aol, aol
then has to send it to EVERY person on your list.  And then
you send it again, and aol has to send it to EVERY person on
your list again.  Just think of all the junk traffic that
creates because you want to annoy the hell out of you're
friends, and cause their UI's to have to update every N
seconds.  Now imagine if two people are doing this.

Maybe you're seeing my point, maybe not, but I can almost
guarantee that this 'feature' will never see the light of
day in gaim, unless it is a third party plugin.

Sounds cool but you should put up one for aim 5.5 if you 
want people to see how it works or make a small video
