Use scrollbar marks for name highlighting
It would be good if when ones nick was typed that a mark (or line) be placed onto the scrollbar to show where it occurred. This is useful if one is away for a long period of time and needs to locate highlights. Many other clients e.g., colloquy implement this feature.
Although Qt does not provide native support for scrollbar marks I have written a library, libqmarkedscrollbar, to provide the necessary functionality. It can be found here: http://freddie.witherden.org/tools/libqmarkedscrollbar/
