Well, we definitely should persist at least 15 messages per contact*
on the device, for message context display. That feature is a hundred
times more important when you have to quit Adium to do anything else.
We don't necessarily need to create and parse chatlog files on the
device. Since the iPhone doesn't expose its file-system anyway, we
could simply put the messages into a database. Someday, when we add
sync with desktop Adium, we'd have desktop Adium translate the
transcripts to chatlog as it receives them from mobile Adium.
*By which I mean metacontact.
