Oh, I may have led you astray slightly.  What I said above about
prpl_info->protocol_options is true for the port (and the other custom options
on the 'Advanced' tab when editing an account).

The Jabber and IRC server is a different setting.  I actually think you can
just call purple_account_set_username(account, "whoever at").  If
that doesn't work then try digging around for prpl->user_splits and
PurpleAccountUserSplit.  I don't remember exactly how it works, but basically
the username for Jabber is made up of the username, domain and resource, and
the PurpleAccountUserSplit structure is used to tell libpurple  what
information is needed from the user.
