PidginSnarl: notification concerning merged "contact" instead of "buddy"

Pidgin allows merging several "buddies" in the same "contact". But notifications only consider "buddies".
For example, if a friend has an MSN account and a Yahoo msgr one, there are two "buddies" but only one "contact". So he is showed only once in Pidgin buddy list. Also, I can contact him disregarding the used IM system.

I have several such merged contacts (actually, my company is changing its IM system so most of us have two accounts).
But each time one of my colleague logs on, I get 2 identical notifications, one for each IM account.

Would it be possible to report activity at "contact" level instead of "buddy" level?

    No problem – deleted all the other :) Not sure if the Pidgin API gives me this feature where I grab the notifications for Snarl.

    BTW you can select in Snarl to not show double notifications (if two of the same come directly after each other)
