[ejabberd] Shared Roster: Names for Contacts

Hello together,

I now did some testing.
http://www.jabber.ru/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=311 is what I'm searching for.
I don't want to read the VCARDs.

Anyway, I can't use this patch as it is implemented, problem is as follows:
I can add users to shared roster with nicks. That works fine. Users see
the contact with the nick I entered in the web interface. So far so good.
But: If the user renames the contact or moves it to another group the 
is gone. That's a no go.

Did I make any misstake or is it a bug?

Thank you for your help...I believe shared rosters with given nicks is a 
feature that makes the projekt more interesing for many many people and
