I have to saiy I haven't use Gaim2 and a lot here haven't. so when you
refer to Gaim2 please be more detailed.

Now about the auto magic, it could be good but it could be also bad.
those automations also spit a helper app that expalins what happend
and says how to turn this off (but then again we're not word

Why I think this automation shouldn't be done in Gajim is this:
I have Paul McCartney and I want to add Paul Thomas Andreson in my roster.

McCartney I have him as 'paul'

so I go to add PTA as 'paul' too. I add him (I dont remember or don't
care that I have alreayd a paul). result: PTA is hidden under
McCartney <music_geekness>and I go listen to: "How do you sleep" of
Lennon. </music_geekness>

unless I miss sth, I don't think we should do this automation. User
can just drag and drop two pauls and we're sure he's surpised by
