Merge consecutive messages from same buddy

Description

Would be possible adding an option in Pidgin to make the nickname of a buddy show only on first message when multiple consecutive messages are sent? For example, this chat:

(10.30.22) Mr.Green: First message (10.31.30) Mr.Green: Second message (10.31.40) Mr.Green: Third message (10.32.45) Mr.Blue: First message (10.35.55) Mr.Blue: Second message (10.38.22) Mr.Green: Fourth message (10.50.22) Mr.Green: Fifth message

Would become: (10.30.22) Mr.Green: First message (10.31.30) Second message (10.31.40) Third message (10.32.45) Mr.Blue: First message (10.35.55) Second message (10.38.22) Mr.Green: Fourth message (10.50.22) Fifth message

Another option to also show the timestamp only on first message would be useful: (10.30.22) Mr.Green: First message

Second message Third message

(10.32.45) Mr.Blue: First message

Second message

(10.38.22) Mr.Green: Fourth message

Fifth message

This seem ugly here, but in an im window is perfectly readable and saves a lot of space when someone has a long nickname.

I'm sorry for the wrong format, I hit submit instead of preview; I opened another correctly formatted ticket #6299: please close this one. Thanks, and sorry for the mistake
