I'm thinking this might work with any \b character. Even [foo,bar,baz] would be autocompletable then. It might be hard to do with [, as "[foo]" might also be a nick. Any character that I think wouldn't be good to allow for nick completion is #, as it's used for channels.

I'm also thinking allowing @foo and +bar could be useful for completion of ops and voiced people, if you explicitly want to note that. (For some reason.)

I'm writing a twitter script where I create a buffer for the twitter script and then use the nick list in there to provide nick completion.

However right now I can't complete nicks when there is a @ infront of it. IE I want to do this:

@ni<tab> --> @nick

Some other people on IRC seems to think this might be useful outside of this use case. For example being able to auto complete nicks like this with special chars infront of them:
{nick1,nick2,nick3}

If this can't be a default feature it would be great if this could be done some how via plugins
