#202 closed enhancement (worksforme)

alias for account in account list

As one of the many with multiple accounts (work, private, etc) in 1 bitblee, I'd love to have an "alias" function on them names. As I have to know the account number to switch one on or off, it would be so much nicer just to type "account off msn-wrk" instead of "account off 3".

Just a minor enhancement :-) (And hopefully this time I did NOT overlook yet another entry about this issue. *sigh*)

It's not a bug dupe, I think. However, did you know this:

14:14:24 @     root| The account ID can be a number (see account list),
                     the protocol name or (part of) the screenname, as
                     long as it matches only one connection.

Is that enough? Account ID doesn't have to be a number, this is the case for some time already.

We talked on IRC. IIRC it was enough?
