MetaContacts Plugin 0.14.0.14
Joins multiple contacts into one. Based on the original by glatapoui.
This plugin allows you to convert a contact to a 'metacontact' (using an option in the contact's menu) - you can then add other contacts to it. The contacts converted or added to the metacontact are hidden, leaving only the meta contact showing in the contact list. You can then send/receive files and messages via the metacontact.
This plugin functions as a protocol, so you can set the icons used for metacontacts.
MetaContacts are usually only displayed when 'groups' are enabled in the contact list - unless the clist supports MetaContacts explicitly. Use the main menu 'toggle metacontacts on/off' option to deal with contacts individually.
Each metacontact has a 'default' contact, to which it prefers to send files/messages and from which it prefers to read status. This default will be overridden in cases where the default contact is not the 'most online'. E.g., if the default contact is 'out to lunch' but another contact is 'online', messages will go to the latter. You can override this behaviour using the 'always send to default' option.
