Improve "unknown" handle message

Currently when somebody send you a message and you don't have that person in your buddy list, you get a message "Unknown handle on <name>" (something like that).

What would be really nice is that bitlbee print out who the handle came from (Yahoo, AIM, Jabber, MSN, etc) so that I can respond to that person. Right now it's a guessing game when I have 7 IM sessions (5 different accounts) and I have no idea who that id belongs too.

Are you really sure this information isn't there? If you use BitlBee 1.0.3 it should be there, but only if you really do have more than one account on that IM network/protocol.

You might want to set handle_unknown to add or something like that, which makes replying to these messages a lot easier.
