After a bit of discussion on IRC we came up with a few possibilities.
Replace the list of names with:
First names only: Richard, Guillaume
Their alias from your alias file, flatcap, guiniol
Abbreviated names (dep. on space) RichRuss, GuilBrog
Person's initials RR, GB

In Mutt terms, an "expando". They're fairly simple to do.

It might be best not to change the behaviour of '%F', but there aren't
many letter of the alphabet left.

Yes, it sounds very useful

That's already done by $reverse_alias so it shouldn't be too hard.
If you (or someone) were to implement the alias part, then we could
leave the abbreviating of names for a beginner.
I'd like the beginner jobs to be as simple as possible. A bit of
coding, then getting them used to submitting code and docs for review.
