Aligning long broken lines to the end of the nick is bad, will create unbalanced, unpleasing layout

Description

Smuxi 0.8.10 breaks long lines and aligns them with the end of the nick that wrote the line.

This is irritating and wastes lot of space, especially when nicks differ in length quite a bit.

Also it wastes screen-estate and causes the lines to break even more often.

Please align broken lines to the same start, the end of the timestamp for example.

Currently.

15:45 <some_really_long_nick> Hi, I'm writing a long line that
                              is split into multiple ones since
                              alignment is wasteful


Should be:
15:45 <some_really_long_nick> Hi, I'm writing a long line that
      is split into multiple ones since alignment is wasteful
