Currently tab-complete orders nick completions by the time they spoke last. This becomes a bit annoying if there are more nicks starting with the same letter as the person I'm talking to. For example:

At this point, WeeChat completes "AThirdUser", "ADifferentUser" and only then "AUser".

However, it would be much more convenient if "AUser" was inserted as the first item in tab-completions.

(It might be easiest to do so by checking my input history for /^nick[,:] / so it would also match nicks I entered manually. But I don't know the internals of Weechat's code.)
