msn (some might apply to other protocols as well):

  1. Display user personal message when user comes online along with nick
  1. Enable personal message changes with /me. e.g. /me is working. (not the same as away)
  1. Display personal message changes for other uses in the style of /me. Could do the same with away messages
  1. Add support for multiple msn log in as the new live messenger does.
  1. If no friendlyname is set, use the nick set by the other users instead of the first part of the e-mail address (replace illegal chars with _)
  1. msn file transfer (might require a lot of work)


  1. If only one account, allow you to use commands without specifying. Alternatively, allow you to set a default.
  1. When changing a friendlyname, allow space but replace them with _
  1. Allow local chars in friendly name, e.g. æøå
  1. set your own friendly name with /nick either globally, default account (see 1.), or specific account (select with option)

If some of these are already implemented I apologize. It was difficult to find out all the features.

I'm afraid I'll need all of these filed as separate requests.. some of them are done already, and some of them are a little bit hard to do.

To name a few things: Personal messages and file transfers are supported for MSN if you use libpurple. Use "set status". Local chars in friendly names should just work. You can set nick_source to something else to generate nicknames from the friendly name instead of the handle.
