Description

Now if you try to set a topic exceeding server topic length limit it gets cut off.

It would be better if Quassel printed an error and refused to changed the topic.

If quassel is going to go through the trouble of figuring out the server limit, would it not make more sense to limit the number of characters allowable for input into the topic widget rather than to refuse the change and lose the changes?

Since there's no topic equivalent to message splitting like there is with normal messages, i can't see a reason not to handle it this way?
