This would only affect "private" aliases, what we used to call "local"
aliases.  If I, for example, have your AIM screen name on my buddy list,
and I set an alias of "Mark Doliner (KingAnt)", our oscar prpl appears
to store this on the server.  purple_serv_got_private_alias() should be
called by the oscar prpl after this alias has been retrieved from the
server instead of serv_got_alias().  Now serv_got_alias() should be used
for "public" (a.k.a. "remote") aliases only.
