Small contribution

Dear,

I want to contribute a patch and and a small module.

The patch (tooltip.patch) is against pidgin 2.5.5 shipped with Fedora 10. 
It basically re-enables old code to disable tooltips in the main window.
It is configured with pidgin -> blist -> tooltip_delay in 
~/.purple/prefs.xml



The module (loc.c) is actually a minimalist implementation of 
functionality in the Sametime client.
At IBM, we usually put our location in the status message (location being 
building, floor, telephone extension, mobile phone number, etc).
The module updates the status message depending on the ip address the 
client uses. It uses a configuration file ~/.purple/loc.xml that looks 
like this:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<locations version='1.0'>
  <loc network='9.36.152.0' netmask='255.255.255.0' status='IBM Brussels' 
/>
  <loc network='9.36.153.0' netmask='255.255.255.0' status='IBM Brussels' 
/>
  <loc network='9.36.113.0' netmask='255.255.255.128' status='IBM Ghent' 
/>
  <loc network='192.168.42.0' netmask='255.255.255.0' status='Home' />
</locations>

The network and netmask fields do not need any explanation. The status 
field should be the title of a saved status.


The module probably needs some polishing and could benefit from a GUI.
But it scratches my itch anyway ;-)

Greetings from Belgium,
And thanks for the excellent product.
