Bitlbee does not show the real nicknames when connecting to

Description is a jabber transport provider for various social networks, like Facebook. When you connect to these transports, you get back a list of cryptic user IDs, but no real nickname. You first get the nickname through XEP-0172, which adds a <nick> tag to the presence messages. Bitlbee does not handle these tags.

Attached is a patch to add the support for presence messages in the jabber protocol. It would be possible to add these checks to message.c too, but when a message arrives, then the user should already have sent its presence.

Subscribing. I'm sure this could also be useful for other Jabber servers using XEP-0172.

Interesting. I just added code to BitlBee to use fullname info for setting the IRC nickname (depending on a per-account setting), butdidn't think of this XEP. Will take a look later.

changeset:devel,499 in case anyone's curious.
