Some times I miss a notification, and I have to scroll all around to try and figure out who last sent me a message. It would be great if the rooms, well rooms might be difficult with lots of activity, but people by last contacted. I could easily look over and see a sorted list of who contacted me last. It would be a great help. Not to say that you should be like other chat programs, but I like how gchat orders the People list, shows a snippet of the last msg, and the avatar of the user. Makes it much easier to navigate.
