Yeah, I was actually wondering a while back whether an IRC transport would use
usernames in the node portion of the JID.  Because obviously MUC does not, and
I was thinking that an IRC transport would have to follow MUC conventions to

(That is, jajcus at ircnet.jabber.bnet.pl -> room at ircnet.jabber.bnet.pl/jajcus)
