Bug Description

Much as I hate to suggest something that might end up becoming more preference detritus, here's a thought...

Given that the message list is reverse chronological, and the main portion of the user interface is at the top of the gwibber window, perhaps the message entry textbox should be located at the top of the window instead?

Though I think that's an entirely sensible default, I realise that some people might object, and as much as I don't want to suggest adding a preference, it might be relevant in the preferences dialogue... "[ ] show message entry at bottom" (because I think the top is the right default, but you may think otherwise).

Thanks! :-)

I'd go even further and leave text box at the bottom but with reversed appearing of messages. New messages at the bottom just like in any other chat application.

@mmiicc : Gwibber is not really a chat application, and if you check the microblogs/social networks, all of them show the latest messages on top, and above all there is the message entry box.
