    Log Message:
    Use a more-liberal username matching algorithm

    - Ignore all non-trailing non-alphanumeric characters when comparing a string against a user's name. Previously, spaces and dots and underscores were mostly-treated as equivalent and white-space was sometimes compressed for comparison purposes (if the user name contained both spaces and dots). This updated algo helps to insure that deliberate or accidental name collisions cannot be created but also aids usability (e.g. users can make some minor cosmetic adjustments to their user name and still be considered the "same user" for most comparison purposes).
    - Terminate the comparison string at an '@' (ignore everything after). This resolves the FAQ of why users can't login with "username@domain" and aides some other username/address matching algorithms (e.g. in the mailserver). '@'s are illegal characters for usernames already.

    Expose the new algorithm via new function matchusername().
    Use the algorithm in matchuser() and lookup_user().

    Unrelated: don't lower-case the 'localuser' part of email addresses in usermailaddr() - cosmetic only.

    Log Message:
    Add getnodeclient() to read a node's client.ini file

    One weird thing is that client_t:
    - has just a const char* for the protocol, so that's strdup/free'd here (consider making this a char array to simplify this API)
    - does not have a socket descriptor, so that value is returned
    - does not have local addr/port info

    Log Message:
    Refactor putuserrec()

    This started with a Coverity issue (CID 33230) which got me looking at this function and wondering: why is str2 being NUL-terminated here? Why is the length of str2 to be calculated on successive lines? What is with this (long)((long)((long)((long)) typecast?

    This was some of the oldest code in Synchronet (along with a lot of the other functions in this file). I tried to keep as much intact as possible while still improving the logic and readability.
