Use Name from profile as display name on LJ Talk

Title
Use Name from profile as display name on LJ Talk

Short, concise description of the idea
Instead of displaying one's user name, use whatever the user enters as the Name on their profile page.

Full description of the idea
Right now, in LJ Talk, one's nickname shows up as their account user name (in my case, diziara). Why aren't we using the name listed in one's profile? (in my case, Just an Object) It seems more intuitive that way, and more in line with the Jabber protocol norm to do it that way, as one's user name is in their login for the protocol (username@livejournal.com) and all the good clients make this information just as visible as the nickname.

An ordered list of benefits
  • LJ Talk will behave more like other Jabber based communication.
  • It will allow users to adjust their name based upon their mood and their current interests.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Will require recoding whatever currently translates profile information over to the Jabber server.
  • May confuse people who aren't used to chat protocols that will allow users to change their display name (but this shouldn't be a big problem, as even the "big names" in chat protocols, like ICQ and MSN have been doing this for years.
