I have written a patch that adds the account number for each contact as a new field on blist output, for example:

Nick          User/Host/Network/Account         Status
jacky (jabber,0)       Online
jack (jabber,1)       Online

>account list
0. JABBER, (connected)
1. JABBER, (connected)

I think this is useful when you have two accounts of the same protocol and the same contact on both accounts, or when you are migrating from an account to a new one, I think also for that people is not interested in this the account number instead of account userid it's more compact and hopefully won't disturb them.

I think your patch is incomplete, the account_get_number() isn't defined anywhere. :-)

Anyway, I'm trying to drop account numbers. They're still supported and will always be, but they're not the easiest to remember. Since version 0.9x (IIRC) it's possible to use the protocol name or parts of the screenname to specify an IM account. So instead, I added the screenname to the blist output.

It takes more space, but it's more consistent with imcb_log() and friends. It looks like this:

Yes it is, in account.c :) And I have the patch applied to my every-day bitlbee and it's working as I expect.

Anyway I like your solution. Thanks Wilmer.
