I originally intended to have something like that, with the user's
favourite contacts or active chats. I wanted to use the task manager
or smooth-tasks widget, depending on how reusable their code was.
But I decided to simplify things for the moment, and just build a
widget that can handle a single chat (for the sake of making it
doable). If I manage to pull it off and continue developing, I'll
build the rest of it and keep what you said in mind.

I'm don't have a lot of experience/skill when it comes to design, but
I wanted to make everything as reusable as possible either way. :)
