I was not satisfied with the current solution of adding Active Directory Users to my roster, as this used the userid by default.
At the end I found that a relative simple patch solved this issue (at least for me), please find the patch against trunk attached
With this patch you can choose in the search window, which column you want to set as nickname just by selecting it.
I'd be happy about feedback, please be aware that im far away from a programmer!
I just want to share my hack
