ah, looks like my patch has a bug, since a "" string will return 1

the if (!string) condition should be if (!string || !string[0])

IRC nicks can only use "a-zA-Z0-9[]\`_^{|}-" chars and can't start with a hyphen or number.
Recently I had to write a regexp in one of my scripts for check this, I figured it would be useful to have it available for any script as an info

in python:

weechat.get_info('irc_is_nick', 'm4v') -> 1
weechat.get_info('irc_is_nick', '#m4v') -> ""
