Even though iirc the ABNF in 1459 "forbids" it, you may use "@" in
nicks, unless you're expecting lots of people with irssi <= 0.8.9.

The 'best' encoding of a JID user at host/res to the irc prefix is
user at host!user at host or - what you need in muc - user at host/res!user at host.
Both are clickable and usable with tab-completion... but tend to occupy
more than 50% of the screen :-(
