I am in the process of writing an addon called Socialist (also on WowAce) which will in effect be an extensive and powerful replacement of the social panel, including entirely abstracting the clunky /who interface provided by Blizzard. To that end, I wish for Socialist to deeply use WhoLib, which does about 95% of what I want Socialist to do for the /who system.
To that end, I'd love to work with your team in extending some of WhoLib's features.
In the mean time, I'd love to see one additional piece of functionality: if an UnregisterWhoLibEvent method could be added, or if the documentation could include how to correctly unregister the WhoLib event. Socialist will listen to EVERY /who (no matter how it was called) to build its internal database of player information, and so callbacks will not be used, but rather this event will.
Another thing that would be nice is if WhoLib supported an abstracted interface to the query. Instead of :Who accepting a string for the query argument, it would accept a table. One field would be name, one class, one location, one level, one guild, etc. etc. As it is I'll have Socialist construct such a query itself to pass to wholib, but it seems like this is work that WhoLib should be doing. I'd be happy to code such a method for you.
