Summary: Conversation: confirm before close unread tabs

Initial Comment:
This patch requests confirmation before closing tabs
with unread messages (from `Close other tabs' or `close
all tabs')

It also makes the gtkconv the handle for the notify/
request dialogs, which I think makes more sense.

sadrul: If you can deal with my one objection here, you should totally
commit this (but maybe post-2.0.0 for string freeze reasons). Otherwise,
could you please move this to Trac?

If I close a window, I don't want to see more than one
confirmation dialog.

The existing confirmation dialog comes up only when you
close the whole window, but doesn't popup when you do `Close
other tabs' or `close this tab', or [accidentally] click on
the [x]. And the existing dialog is modal.

I have attached a new patch which removes the existing
dialog, and uses the new dialogs. The result is, a popup
will appear for each tab with unread messages, and the tabs
with no unread messages will be closed. This behaviour is
different from the existing behaviour (currently it doesn't
close any tab).

I am unable to decide whether this would confuse users.

I accepted the gtkconv handle portion of this patch.  
Thanks.  
 
As for the confirmation dialog.... We already have code to  
build a confirmation window when you try to close the
window and one of the tabs has unread messages. I'd like to
see this new dialog be more connsisten with that. The code
should probably be reworked a bit so there isn't
duplication. Let me know if that sounds stupid.
