I don't really know the right terminology, but in rcirc there seem to be
two sorts of conversation buffers -- "private" buffers, where your
output always goes to a specific person, and "shared" buffers where you
use "user:" as a prefix to send to "user".

In the latter ("shared") buffers, it might make sense to do something
special with word-colon prefixes -- using an invalid username already
seems to get an error, at least using bitlbee -- but it doesn't really
in "private" conversation buffers, where such syntax doesn't seem to be
treated specially (though for whatever reason, nick completion still

I probably have some of the details wrong, so please correct me, but it

"shared" conversation buffers.
