Definitely the ability to initiate chats with offline contacts would be great; Do lacks this feature, if I recall correctly, and that made the plugin less useful for me. As Colin suggests, making it an option with a default of off would be excellent.

Some desired features could include:
* Start conversations (online contacts, +offline when enabled)
* Send files to contacts.
* View chat history for contacts.
* Change status (Available, away, busy, etc) with ability to set a custom message, as well.
* Send IMs directly through Synapse (like Do does; this is very useful).
* Enable/disable IM accounts.
* When starting a chat (example: type Pidgin, tab), it could sort contacts by most-talked-with.
