Only if you decline my suggestion (b). (and I made that suggestion
because in all of SILC, IRC & XMPP the 'left the room' message only uses
the nick and not anything that might look more like an email address)

That is true, but in the context of linkifying in an IM client it is not
necessarily useful. Admittedly I deliberately made
purple_email_is_valid() accept it, but I doubt it's used to verify such
addresses *ever*.

I feel the pain that finch might suffer. It's also starting to sound
like it needs buy-in from other clients, or standardization or other
stuff that scares me a lot.
