It's possible to locally alias both AIM and ICQ buddies and have this
information stored, isn't it? As I understand it, this is what
"private" refers to. If you change the private alias from another
client and the server sends an update to you, serv_got_private_alias
should be called. serv_got_alias (or perhaps later _public_alias) should
be called when you receive the alias that a user has defined for
himself, such as one's own annoying MSN friendly name.
The policy in terms of this information is currently, I believe, to
display the public alias if one exists unless we have a private one set.
This was one of those prefs we slashed away some time ago.
Felipe's patch introduces to libpurple the ability to tell a buddy's own
alias apart from our alias for him, then as a UI, display one, both,
neither, or the xor of the bits or whatever we like.
