[IRCServices] Suggestion: AKICK kick reason format change

Recently some users on my network have taken to adding AKICKs for
people with the reason "KICK by SomeOtherUser" and then using AKICK
enforce to cause ChanServ to kick the user with the reason "KICK by
SomeOtherUser". This of course looks exactly like the kick reason if
SomeOtherUser had used cs kick, which is slightly confusing to users,
especially new ones.
Therefore I suggest that when ChanServ kicks a user because of an AKICK
it use a format something like "AKICK by RealNickname (reason here)"
where RealNickname is the nick of the user that added the AKICK. I
realize this is somewhat of an education problem of the users, but it
strikes me as somewhat similar to prefixing channel entry messages with
the channel name (to prevent people from faking actual ChanServ
messages). Granted it's probably not as serious, but still slightly
confusing if you're new to IRC. :)
I'm curious what other people think about this. Anyone have any other
thoughts about this?
