The XMPP client I used to use to keep up with my timeline before identica-mode keeps logs of all received dents (while it's connected). In addition to bug 30879, I'd very much like to be able to archive dents I receive as well, ideally in some format that could be easily searched afterwards. Unshortened URLs in them would be a nice bonus :-)

If dents are archived in a way that can be loaded back in and displayed in an identica window, this would obviate another feature that I find desirable: that of carrying the state of an identica-mode session left running on a desktop computer e.g. overnight or during a long (disconnected) trip to another computer.

I suppose this would amount to little more than enabling saving of identica-timeline-data on files (per day, per week, per session/cache reset, whatever), and being able to create an identica-mode buffer back out of such files. I've played a bit with dumping identica-timeline-data out to text files and reading them back in or setting the variable to the value taken from a different session, but IIRC some # quoting issues seem to have made it remarkably difficult. Thoughts?
