By now it seems everything after the username is send as a message to the user when (s)he appears next. After running the command as shown in the description, I logged in as eddiegp1, and got

[19:10] <wm-bot> Hi eddiegp1, eddiegp was looking for you and wanted me to tell you this when you are here: eddiegp2

as a private message from wm-bot directly after joining #wikimedia-dev
