First of all, learn to type. There's no good coder who can't type with the MTV-method (I watch MTV while coding ;-) Second, what if someone creates a user name msg or msh or whatever you like to type? It's no good idea. Instead I suggest you to hack one of the various clients and edit its source. You should add some security checks, like allowing it only for certain usernames so you don't send a msg to vrooom instead of vroom.
-- package Lizard::King; sub can { do { 'anything'} };

    I had thought of the username thing had think it would be more than reasonable that for any user with a username matching (one of the few) keywords, they would not have access to the syntactic sugar. And as for vroom vs. vroomm, that "problem" already exists.

    And I would have to disagree with your comment about MTV-method. Though in the grand scheme, I myself could careless whether or not I make typos; that's what perl -c is for.

    perl -p -e "s/(?:\w);([st])/'\$1/mg"
