Complete (hopefully) fix for nickname changes: Add flags to the identify
command to allow identifying without loading any new settings. With some
documentation hints.

     123BitlBee now allows you to change your nickname. So far this was not possible because it made managing saved accounts more complicated.

     127The restriction no longer exists now though. When you change your nick (just using the <emphasis>/nick</emphasis> command), your logged-in status will be reset, which means any changes made to your settings/accounts will not be saved.

     131To restore your logged-in status, you need to either use the <emphasis>register</emphasis> command to create an account under the new nickname, or use <emphasis>identify -noload</emphasis> to re-identify yourself under the new nickname. The <emphasis>-noload</emphasis> flag tells the command to verify your password and log you in, but not load any new settings. See <emphasis>help identify</emphasis> for more information.
