/whois should popup dialog instead of displaying text in chat

It would be great if, when a user preforms a /whois command on a user, it could
popup a dialog with all the information ordered nicely.

this is not a bug but an RFE

Remove myself from QA of 33 open Chatzilla bugs and change to default QA
contact, since I have no way to verify these easily.  Still no working Mozilla
on my primary platform and it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. :(

No what you want is a /uwho command like in mIRC. there are many good reasons
why /whois acts like it does.
May I suggest something intermediate between what this RFE asks and what
ChatZilla currently does? The WHOIS response could be shown in the server tab
instead of the current tab.

My personal idea is to add a single preference for "Use dialogs instead of
displaying data in-line" (with better wording!), which toggles between commands
opening dialogs and not (maybe store flag on the command event data too?).

Commands that might care: whois, who, list, join, connect, attach, server, network.
