+1 to all of comment 21 and the underlying understanding of nicks as 1
on 1 aliases. However, focus in this bug is on giving resolved (single)
nicks precedence in autocomplete results. So resolving multiple comma-
separated nicks is probably beyond the scope of this bug. More
reminiscent of (but perhaps not the same as) bug 295428. I'd recommend
filing a separate bug for resolving a comma-separated list of nicknames.
