I've finally done it with pyton + dbus + purple, shamelessly copying a
script I've found on the web. My script produces a file with a list of
connected buddies which changes under connection/disconnection events,
and then in wmiirc I read the file each time the status bar is updated.

But perhaps your script is wiser, since it puts things directly on wmii
file system. However, I can't access it. I think the smart ass people
running my ISP don't like strange ports. Would you please send it to me
by email?

Thanks a lot,
