Thanks again for your help. All of my pidgin/finch patches were merged 
upstream, so that's out of the way. Still looking for feedback from this group 
about the changes I made to the plugin, and whether/how it can be incorporated 
into the official source here.

Has anyone here tried it out? Any reactions to the UI changes I made?
