Patching BitlBee

Setting up BitlBee with Skype, I've came across problem with nick names of my contacts. For some of them nick_format = %full_name was not effective (only offline ones where OK). Moreover, some of my contacts choose weird "Full Name" for whatever reasons. I've renamed them in Skype client long time ago to keep my contact list clean and sensible. But BitlBee Skype protocol doesn't read "Display Name". Luckily I was able to fix both of these problems.

I've added also another patch for BitlBee's Twitter protocol. It makes it possible to rename twitter channel by devising its name from account tag.
