Feature Request: switch active conversation when clicking contact or conversation

My company switched from Skype to Hangouts, so I'm using Hangouts Plus to ease the transition. Working pretty well, but there's one thing that continues to cause an issue. If I click a Contact or Conversation in the left-hend navigation pane, it opens a tab for that Conversation on the right. But if that conversation is already open (but I'm viewing another conversation), clicking does nothing. I'd like to see it change the active tab.

Example: I'm chatting with Alice. Bob sends me a chat, so now I'm talking to Bob. Both Alice and Bob tabs are open, but I'm chatting with Bob. Now I'm done, and I want to talk to Alice again. I can click the tab, but I can't click on Alice's face in the Contact list, because Alice's conversation tab is already open, it's just not the current tab.

This is a minor issue, but would help usability alot - right now, if I want to talk to Alice, sometimes I click her face (No chat tab open with Alice), but sometimes I have to find her tab (Chat tab with Alice already open). I'd like to be able to always click her face, even when the tab is already open.
