ssb clients don't currently display a different representation. Nor indeed do they inherit names used by introducers. But they have all the information they would need to do so.
(And I have a `@Mom` on there.)
(I continue to think you should give ssb a look, not the first time I've seen your thoughts parallel design descisions it made)
@joeyh Cool to hear... do they do the visual distinction of "how you come to know the name" (eg WoT shown differently than added directly by the user)?
@joeyh It looks like it has part, but not all, of what's talked about in Mark Miller's vision for petnames (or as I understand it, as described in that paper). It doesn't have the multiple, and visually distinct, types of petname representations depending on "where it came from" afaict?
When I spoke to Mark, he was insistent that this is a really important and key part of the design.
Still, good to see that the minimum of it is in there.
@cwebber the data needed to display such things is there; none of the clients display it in that particular way.
(I had posted a reply earlier saying that, but it seems that it silently failed to post, while displaying on my screen here?)
@joeyh Cool, thanks for sharing that information :)
@joeyh I guess it's time to run and try it
