Please allow period (.) in nicks

I am on an XMPP server where almost everybody is on the form firstname.lastname. However, Bitlbee doesn't allow period (.) in nicks, and they end up as firstnamelastname. I don't see any good reason why not to simply add . to the whitelist. Do you think it could be done?

Hm, and I think even with utf8 nicks enabled this won't work, or will it?

As I read the source code, even with UTF-8 nicks enabled, the nick_{lc,uc}_chars arrays are consulted for anything below 0x7f.
