I have some suggestions for undernet to:

-Okay, I was thinking about a command that services can send to all servers in a network to stop accepting new users.
This will be verty useful when a clone attack is taking place that tries to DoS the server(s). When services notice something is going wrong with the connections, they could send a signal to the other servers in the network to stop accepting new users.

-Channelmode +N:
A channel mode like +C, but the for Channel Notices.
Channel Notices are most of the time used for spam.
(Quakenet uses this in their modified version of IRCu 'Asuka').

-No throttling anymore for trusted hosts.
This is useful for BNC/eggdrop/.. providers

-Usermode +n to stop receiving messages from not authed users.

-Usermode +h/sethost: This command is also used in Asuka to give opers costum hostmasks etc...

-Channelmode +u: No costum quit/part messages anymore.

-When a user changes the topic, ircu sets the name of the user who changed it.
Well what I like to change here is the use of the Account (AC).
When the user is not authed is uses the classic style (set by nick).
When set by an authed user, it sets set by *account_name or #account_name.

Define "custom." Each IRC client out there (java/webchat included) each has its own "standard" quit message.

IRCU does not set the topic that way, X does. There is a difference. A user who is not logged into his or her username account in X cannot set the channel description and autotopic flags anyway, so this is a moot point.

That is available for all ircops.

Examples:
Set oper_host .....: opers.nevernet.net
This will make a Global Oper's host change to opers.nevernet.net when they
/oper up if iNAH is enabled.

Personalized host are availible for admins, tech admins and local ops (obsolete, noone uses "small o" anymore, maybe ircop-in-training )

Unreal ircd also supports /chghost command wich allows every ircop to personalize his/hers host


The example is taken from Ircd configuration document:
