MSN groupchats don't show who invited you

The MSN groupchats don't show who invited you into the groupchat, which is widely thought to be the first who was reported in an IRO command, sent from the switchboard server.

Attached patch solves this by adding the address-to-nickname mapped nickname to the topic, and if there's none, it just shows the e-mail address.

After a brief discussion, we've concluded that the patch violates the oh-so-nice layering of bitlbee's API, so this isn't ever going into mainline.

A clean way of implementing it is still in progress.

Also note my findings as of recently.

Sometimes the switchboard server will send you the IRO list in alphabetical order, and thence this patch will tell you somebody else invited you. Bottom line is that there's no way of knowing at all times.

Hmm, if this is unreliable I'd rather not import it.

BTW, I thought the initial RNG message on the switchboard already mentions the remote user?

Closing this since it's not possible.

I remember trying a variation of this in emesene a few years ago, but the results were completely random.
