Buddy list and chats in a single window

There should be an option to have the buddy list and all IM/chat tabs in the same window. Perhaps a two-pane window, with the buddy list in one thinner pane, and tabbed chats in a wider pane (configurable, of course).
I like to think of the buddy list+chats as one entity ("Pidgin"), which should have one window. Right now I must have at least two windows, which [un]minimise/focus/etc separately; and which are treated as two separate windows in the taskbar, Alt+Tab window switcher, other window switchers (using Compiz), and any other place where windows are listed. I use all other applications maximised, but need to manually arrange the Pidgin buddy list and chat windows side by side to appear like one maximised window.
