it's impossible to get newly opened buffer's type (private/channel) if relay is not doing a full sync #191

if i do

    sync * buffers

then for opened buffers i get this


while doing a full sync i also get


these local variables, as far as i know, is the only way to tell if the buffer is private or channel. this is in fact what i'm doing (can i have other channel types that would indicate single-user and multiuser conversations?):

    /** determine if the buffer is PRIVATE, CHANNEL, or OTHER */
    private void processBufferType() {
        final RelayObject t = local_vars.get("type");
        if (t == null) type = OTHER;
        else if ("private".equals(t.asString())) type = PRIVATE;
        else if ("channel".equals(t.asString())) type = CHANNEL;
        else type = OTHER;

this is necessary to determine if i should alert the user if i receive a message that is not highlight. in case of PRIVATE, i alert user on every message. by the way, this is how i determine if the message is, well, a message (is this a proper way?):

    private int findOutMessageType() {
        // there's no tags, probably it's an old version of weechat, so we err
        // on the safe side and treat it as from human
        if (tags == null) return LINE_MESSAGE;

        if (tags.length == 0) return LINE_OTHER;

        final List list = Arrays.asList(tags);
        if (!list.contains("log1")) return LINE_OTHER;
        return list.contains("notify_none") ? LINE_OWN : LINE_MESSAGE;

anyways, the problem is that in _buffer_opened event i get no local vars. and i do not receive any updates. so the buffer type remains OTHER and i can't know if i should be alerting user or not. i suggest either squashing the events together into one _buffer_opened_together_with_tags_and_all event, or enabling _buffer_localvar_added for sync * buffers. or something...
