Ah yes, you're right, my mistake.

Either way, if you're comparing the full JID and the resourcepart is
different you probably want the color to be different. If you're
comparing users in 1:1 chats, you probably want to drop the resourcepart
before doing the comparison anyways in which case it's not a problem.
