Please change "irc.network.alternate_nick" to a per-network setting #633
WeeChat's ability to dynamically create alternate nicks is awesome, but some networks have issues when a user does not connect with exactly the right nick. It is really a shame to have to disable this feature on all networks just because one network is being a pain.
Could you please make "irc.network.alternate_nick" settable on a per-network basis instead of having it be a global setting as it is now? I think that the easiest way to accomplish this would be to move it to "irc.server_defaults.alternate_nick" and "irc.server.[network name].alternate_nick", and this would also allow people to still set it globally using "irc.server_defaults.alternate_nick" if they wanted to.
EDIT: GitHub stripped part of this post because I used angle brackets as delimiters, so I changed them to square brackets.
