Added a meta-contact twitter_$username and replaced the "use_groupchat"
setting with a "mode" setting which also allows for a mode where everything
just comes from the meta-contact. Tweets should now go to that user or to
the channel (if available). Messages to others become DMs.

    75                                                 By default all your Twitter contacts will show up in your contact list and their tweets will show up as private messages or in &amp;bitlbee depending on your settings. If you want them in a separate channel, use the use_groupchat setting (see <emphasis>help set use_groupchat</emphasis>).
