There's an IRC nick field in FAS. My thoughts were by default for new 
users we'll prepopulate it with their FAS account name; if you've a 
preexisting account put in whatever your usual IRC nick is. If you use 
hubs as an IRC client, use the nick from FAS. If there's a nick 
collision / somebody's already registered it, I don't know that it would 
be so difficult to detect that and prompt the user to pick another one.

Was that the concern or is there something I'm missing?
