     Again, what would you need to know this for?  If you want to know
whether a given nickname is a real user or not, one way is to just call
get_user() on the nick; Services' nicks aren't stored in the user table
(this really ought to be documented somewhere, but I'm too busy right now),
so you can differentiate between real users and (Services nicks + nicks not
in use).
