Fix a wrong description of how addressing works in biboumi

IRC channels and IRC users JIDs have a localpart formed like this:
`name`, the `'%'` separator and the `irc_server`.
For an IRC channel, the name starts with `'&'`, `'#'`, `'+'`
or `'!'`. Some other gateway implementations, as well as some IRC
clients, do not require them to be started by one of these characters,
adding an implicit `'#'` in that case. Biboumi does not do that because
this gets confusing when trying to understand the difference between
*foo*, *#foo*, and *##foo*.
If the name starts with any other character, this represents an IRC user.
If the IRC channel you want to adress starts with the `'#'` character (or
less frequently, but still valid, one of `'&'`, `'+'` or `'!'`), then you
must include it in the JID. Some other gateway implementations, as well as
some IRC clients, do not require them to be started by one of these
characters, adding an implicit `'#'` in that case. Biboumi does not do that
because this gets confusing when trying to understand the difference between
the channels *foo*, *#foo*, and *##foo*.
If compiled with Libidn, an IRC user has a bare JID representing the
“hostname” provided by the IRC server.
