Make biboumi add an asterisk to Last Message Correction corrections
LMC is a handy feature. Obviously, the XMPP use cannot be translated 1:1 to IRC. However, it is customary to mark changed messages with
* (either at the beginning of the message or close to the first change).
I propose that either:
- biboumi prefixes the body of LMC messages with
- biboumi compares the corrected version with the original version and put an
*before the word of the location of the first difference.
Original message : I fronicated the fnord. Corrected message (XMPP): I frobnicated the fnord. Corrected message (IRC) : I *frobnicated the fnord.
(It’d also be nice if biboumi reflected the message as LMC including the
* so that XMPP clients can show it nicely.)
Things to consider: Correcting a typo in the leading
/me of an action message (e.g. if you typed
/ne instead of
/me can’t work that way).
