Comment (by David Woodhouse <dwmw2@…>):

 (In [ad627e43c7fe]):[[BR]]
 Add get_cb_alias() method to PRPL

 This allows the PRPL to provide aliases for chat room members, without
 having to create a full transient buddy for them as it does for IM
 peers. For IM peers we actually want the presence information, photo
 and other stuff which makes a full buddy worthwhile. Not so for chat
 room members, and the overhead is significant for large rooms so this
 light-weight alternative makes more sense
