findPerson doesn't search irc nicks

Bug #297667 reported by Brian Murray
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

The Launchpad api has a findPerson function but that only: "Return all non-merged Persons with at least one email address whose name, displayname or email address match <text>." It'd be useful if it also searched irc nicks since that is a common method of communication.

PersonSet.findPerson() has one two callsites in Lp code to support selecting a user to merge and to search for users in/people. The search is not very useful. Most code uses one of th many person vocabularies, which do support searching IRC nick. I suspect the findPerson()'s implementation can be simplified to call the right vocabulary
