I want to have private messages display in the current buffer, regardless of which channel/server they are coming from. It makes it very convenient for using tools such as the Bitlbee IM client, as well as keeping conversations with people on other networks while conversing in a specific channel. Merging buffers must be done manually and would keep the messages only in the buffer which I merge them with, which means I would still have to switch around between buffers.

The "PRIVMSG" is not only private messages, but any message to channel or a nick (name of message is bad..). So changing target buffer of this message is not a good idea ;)

What was your idea? Display private messages in current buffer? I don't think it's good thing to mix such messages with channel, why do you want that? (by the way, do you know you can merge buffers with /buffer merge?)

We can send notices and whois results to the current buffer using irc.msgbuffer.notice "current" and irc.msgbuffer.whois "current", but we cannot do the same with private messages. There should be an option for irc.msgbuffer.privmsg that allows private messages to be sent to the current buffer, as opposed to them having to open their own.
