If someone got two XMPP accounts, you might append the server name in
brackets. Or when using transports, you might want to append something
like (ICQ). Or one got a work accound and a private account, you might
want to add (Work) and (Home). Or someone still uses his old account,
but only for a short amount of time, so you might append (old). Or you
added the other account as a fallback, so you might want to append
(fallback). There are 1000 of reasons. Thus, I consider the Kopete
behaviour rather bad.
