should fall back gracefully if CM does not support Message_Type_Action
Submitted by Simon McVittie
< wjt> does butterfly support Message_Type_Action?
< smcv> wjt: it doesn't, Empathy tries anyway and gives me an error
< smcv> does MSN have the concept of an action message?
< smcv> arguably Empathy should turn (ACTION, "drinks heavily") into
(NORMAL, "*** drinks heavily") for protocols that can't do
< wjt> Maybe Empathy should send "/me laughs" as-is
< smcv> having the UI be
< smcv> *** drinks heavily
< smcv> or even
< smcv> /me drinks heavily
< smcv> would be considerably better than just erroring!
< Zdra> smcv, empathy does not uses Messages
< Zdra> smcv, and does not try any caps
< Zdra> smcv, we are using old Text iface ;)
< smcv> Zdra: ok, so Empathy is also at fault, it should call
Text.GetMessageTypes(), and use the result for graceful fallback
< smcv> Zdra: however, butterfly currently prevents that from working in
In the case of Butterfly this is blocked by http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24699.
