I'm all for making this option the default - I see no reason why
people would not want to sort the nicknames. Pretty much every IRC
client used today sorts the nicknames like this. I just figured maybe
some people get annoyed by the (almost infinitely small) overhead it
takes to perform the actual sorting. rcirc users like to keep it
minimalistic I have found.

Sorry about that, I will take that part of the manual into account in
any future patches.

By the way, it seems Stefan already applied this patch, so I don't
know where to go from here...
