I am amazed to think I found a feature that I can do (with some work) in irssi and ircii due to their more mundane models but not in weechat! Alternating the color of the displayed time each hour in a channel gives a sense of how much activity there is quickly and visually. A quick discussion in IRC gave me the impression this might be worthwhile. This is a feature I value greatly in an IRC client.

Right now /set weechat.color.chat_time <color> will change the displayed color of all times on the screen. I propose a new setting weechat.color.chat_time_odd <color> that will display an odd hour's time stamp with a different new color. The default setting would be null so odd and even chat_time display as the same color. Even colors continue to display using the default color.

Attached is a patch for what I think is the more trivial part of adding the option. The logic to use the option is a bit more involved because it requires using the hour value of the displayed time to know if it is odd or even.
