403 - Toast Button

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
Apologies beforehand, if this feature request has been asked again. I usually have the "Original Buttons" module enabled instead of the "Buttons" one. Now with the first one enabled the little button that shows how many of your friends are online and when pressed opens your social window (It is called toast button or something I think, but don't credit me for it) doesn't appear at all. Well I know we didn't have this button before the introduction of the new chat and all that from 3.3.5 but it is a conventient feature and I would love to have it appear while having the "Original Buttons" module enabled. I hope I am as clear as possible with my description, else let me know and I'll provide a screenshot.
Thanks in advance
Please provide any additional information below.

    Here's what I use to move the Friends/Social button in a script bin-style addon of mine, hope it helps:

    -- Moves Friends Buttpn
    FriendsMicroButton:SetPoint("BOTTOMLEFT", UIParent, 1, 215)
    FriendsMicroButton.SetPoint = function() end

    Ok I did my homework and came up with a few new results/requests.

    First off the name of the button I was looking for is the Social Button. Secondly, having the "Original Buttons" module enabled, I have issues while pressing the up and down arrows to scroll through the chat. If having one of the up or down buttons pressed the pace in which the chatframe scrolls either up or down is very very slow, and I mean very slow! Pressing once and then releasing the buttons moves the chatframe by one line. This problem doesn't occur when having the "Buttons" module enabled.

    While having the "Original Buttons" module I get the option to set the alpha at which the buttons show, their position, as well as show or not the button frame, features that are not part of the "Buttons" module.

    A combination of those two modules would be very handy indeed. I would love to be able to show or not the Social Button, set the buttons alpha and their position while at the same time retain the speed paced scrolling functionality (using the up/down buttons). I know I can now use my mouse wheel to scroll through the chat but sometimes it is not that handy especially when you have assigned other tasks to your mouse wheel. Last but not least while having the "Buttons" module enabled and having ticked all options off (but for the "show social menu") the social menu button gets placed inside the chat frame in an odd position something that gets solved when enabling all options again. Oh, and unless I have done something horribly wrong I can't seem to find neither the minimize button (when having that option enabled) not its functionality (but I guess I must be doing something wrong).

    All in all like stated above a combination of the options of those two modules if possible would be a good thing. Thanks for all your efforts.
