Comment(by deryni):

 At the moment pidgin cannot use GtkTreeModelFilter:s because they were
 added in GTK+ 2.4 and pidgin is committed to staying compatible with GTK+
 2.0 for the time being. They will become usable when pidgin releases
 version 3.0.0 as the plan is to increase our minimum required GTK+ version
 at that time.

 That being said, it doesn't appear at first glance to require that much
 work to make the filters work once we can use them. It would seem that
 simply adding a row-visible column, wrapping the existing model in the
 filter model, and displaying the filter model instead of the existing
 model would work. (Ignoring all the code to actually toggle the visible
 column data as appropriate of course.)

 A plugin could likely be written to try to do this at the moment as a
 proof-of-concept if nothing else.
