Can you please add a feature to messages to unmerge / merge diferent conversation types? (Like Gtalk, SMS, (skype))

The option could fit in gui under apps settings of the Messages app. I hate that my sent and received SMS-es buried between other, online messages. I understand that some may like this feature, but giving the option to chose should not be hard to implement, and would not overwhelm the gui, and the ux.

some kind of type filter in messages would be nice indeed

You can unlink the contact into separate contacts if that's what you want.

No thats totally not relevant to my problem. I want the People app to look clean, therfore keep my contacts linked, but i want to have different message types (sms, gtalk) to be as different threads in the messages app.

It sure does sound like a pretty good solution to your problem, though. You get some more contacts in the People app and... that's it. What you want will never happen because the idea is to have everything integrated, and an option to deintegrate some things doesn't work well with that idea.

yeah, dat would be awesome. Have 3-4 contacts with the same name in people app, instead of easily identicable message threades. In what world do you call it a good design concept or a great ux? What if i prefer my contacts being integrated over my messages.... Do you think its a normal scenario, that you receive an sms, then you answer it on skype, then you get a reply via hangouts that you answer with an sms? wow such integrate. If I want to write an sms then probably i am willing to reply an sms. If i start a conversation on skype, then i dont want it to be distrupted by hangouts messages or incoming sms messages.
