I accidentally reinvented part of this, except uglier, today during a UI argument on #adium-devl: http://trac.adium.im/ticket/15755

As sholt so aptly put it... "if it's invented multiple times… ;)"

>>  - Character count with smart appearance behavior
>>  - Toolbar button redesign - looks very clean and natural
