This has been implemented already by Luke-Jr, it was the 'aka' command on IRC/armabot.
It's no longer available though.

Didn't aka just record everytime someone changed their nick in game?
The ease at which you can get someones ip or the ammount of people capable of viewing them in popular servers doesn't really justify simply searching for a nick as abuse
& I'm not sure 'criminal records office' is very fitting Word :/

perhaps we will change that but we liked the abbreviation "AACRO" which sounds better than ip finder....
imagine someone saying "there's this strange guy applying for our clan...let's check the aacro!" lol

Rather easy for anyone to become an admin.

Suffice it to say, I won't be submitting my logs to this thing.

I think people should be able to play with some level of anonymity. (I don't even allow myself to view /msg's when I'm logged in.) Legitimate, cross-server troublemakers are easily enough, and better, dealt with on a case-by-case basis, on the mutual cooperation of individual server owners.

I don't like it that much, either. Yeah, I provided some code, but that code happens to prevent it from returning a million addresses at once. That will at least keep it in check.

If you didn't cause any trouble nobody is interested in your other aliases - you can just ask an admin to get all aliases of a certain player but now you can also do that for yourself when you have his IP (which means you need access to this person's IP before you can do anything.)

I have seen players announce each others' IP's right there on the grid. Some servers even announce IP's when a player enters the grid like ###.###.??? or w/e. I'm not the savviest of players by a longshot, but it seems this information is readily available and easy enough to find if you're clever.
