I need ability to set nickname on Cyrrrilic to my full name in jabber MUC.

But seems it is not allowed because of nick_ok function not always called with irc instance, sometimes with NULL as first arg.

So as solution for myself I use this patch:


if (

(irc && (irc->status & IRC_UTF8_NICKS))


I am not sure if it is safe to have own nick in UTF-8 from point of view of IRC standards. But if it is possible, please add a normal way to set own nickname to UTF-8.
