#63 closed defect (fixed)

zwriting multiple users looks like zwriting one user

Description

doing

zwrite foo bar

results in an entry like

   Zephyr sent to foo  13:38  (zsig)
       Body

which looks like it only actually got sent to the first recipient, though it does correctly go to all listed recipients.

We have at least two ways to display "zwrite foo bar"

Option A:

Zephyr sent to foo 13:38 (zsig)

Body

Zephyr sent to bar 13:38 (zsig)

Body

This leaves us with a further choice: what happens if you reply to one of them?

# Replies to just the user under the cursor # Replies to both users

(1) seems more intuitive...

Option B:

Zephyr sent to foo bar 13:38 (zsig)

Body

There are at least two ways to implement this:

# Put all recipients in the recipient field, probably separated by spaces # Put all recipients in a new recipients field, as a list or space-separated

(1) would probably be easier to do in the short term, but might cause bugs; (2) is probably more invasive but less bug-filled.

Thoughts?

Consensus via Zephyr seems to be Option A.1 (multiple zephyrs, replying goes just to the user under the cursor).

Further, CC'd messages should give "CC'd" as the pretty_recipient (consensus on this versus "multiple recipients" is a bit weaker). (Note that the information given by "i" on the message will be (arguably?) wrong (it will still display only one recipient), but I think that is okay.)
