Summary: Attention request signals..

Initial Comment:
Hi i was trying to write, just for fun, a plugin that shakes the window when a 
nudge arrives but the only way i've found to do it was listening to 
displayed-im-msg signal. Since i don't think that's the better way i've added 
two conversation signals that are emitted when msn receives and sends a nudge. 
They can also be emitted by yahoo buzz or whenever an "attention request" event 
is needed. The received-attention-request signal takes also a string as an 
argument to contain the buddy name who requested our attention.
Please let me know if am i doing something wrong or if it isn't the right way 
to do it.
I've also writed a small plugin to test the signals and make window shake on 
nudge.. let me know if you want to test it.

i didnt't catch you on im..
i don't know if i understood what you mean.. you want me to write the
common function to replace msn_nudge and the equivalent of yahoo with a
cross-protocol one? and emit my signal from there? i'm new to gaim
development what do you mean when you say core? libgaim? isn't
conversation.c the right place to register my signals?

The plan we've had for this is to add a concept of a "bell" (or similar)
to the core. The protocols would call some common function to deal with the
receipt of a nudge or buzz, and the core would sent the signal and print
the message to the conversation window. If you're going to start adding
signals for this, I'd like to see the core functionality taken care of at
the same time.

If you want to talk about this more, feel free to catch me online. Given
that you've written patches for them, the following protocols will probably
work best for you: Yahoo: rlaager or MSN: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
