 I'm with datallah that the username seems like a perfectly good default to
 me and I'm unsure why we need to add a way to add yet another way to refer
 to the account in pidgin (we already have enough confusion about the Local
 alias field as it exists without adding another field somewhere else).
 That being said a plugin can provide this feature, and at some point I
 know someone in fact wrote a plugin to provide a very similar feature
 (though I am unsure what they did with it once they completed it).
