I think adding a feature to automatically change nickname to nick1 nick2 nick3 when you get the error "Erroneus Nickname" at the connection should be a good idea.

On some IRC you must have a VERY specific nickname when you login, because your nickname and server password is used to identify you.

So when you change your nickname to something like "oxman|blabla" and you are disconnected, weechat can't reconnect you and get at each connection "Erroneus Nickname", weechat sould trying also nick1, nick2, nick3 to solve that.
