(Related ticket: issue #283)
If someone's freenode registration has lapsed and someone else took their nickname and they can no longer authenticate to it, we need to handle that case.
cases to handle:
- nick expired, still available: no issue, just log them in
- nick expired, db purge: re-register same nick
- nick expired, someone else grabbed it: need to re-register with new nick
If the nick can be recovered, we can do that behind the scenes. This issue only applies to the situation in which the registration was lost and the user must come up with another nick.
