Feature Request: WebUI

So i've been having a nightmare of a time having to switch between pidgin
on the desktop and various clients on my android phone.. The main issue is
because of a plugin i can not live without. "OTR Encryption".

No other clients support OTR encryption in the way that pidgin does and
since there is not an android client for pidgin..

And using a nonotr client just results in every person messaging me encoded
lol as their clients still assume the connection is encrypted.

Wouldn't it be much easier if the pidgin client itself or by plugin would
include a https webui that could be accessd via a native mobile app or
browser to connect to your home client?

This way all of the plugins currently configured and running on the home
system would be accessible from the mobile client as well.

Just my 2 cents.. I'd like to hear what others think.

Granted there would be other things involved.. Port forwarding, dynamic
dns's etc.. But for most people that run pidgin I would assume that
wouldn't be too much of an issue for.

Let me know what you think :D
