Mibew Advanced Button plugin

It make the button represents actual operator's state and automatically hides it if the chat was started.

Additionaly the plugin sets the class mibew_visible or mibew_hidden for the button depending on its alleged visibility. It can be useful for implementing some custom effects with cloaking mode (see below) set to none.

The plugin needs the feature "Tracking and inviting" to be enabled. Otherwise it will just not work.

NB.: If one enabled the feature "Tracking and inviting" for the first time, the button should be regenerated.
