If most IRC clients sort nicknames this way, it may not be necessary to
create a new option `rcirc-sort-nicknames'.  We should just perform the
sorting automatically.  What do you think?  (I don't know enough about
"typical" IRC behavior to say).

Also, your docstrings need work.  Please read the Documentation node in
the Elisp manual:

     When you write a documentation string, make the first line a
     complete sentence (or two complete sentences) since some
     commands, such as `apropos', show only the first line of a
     multi-line documentation string.
