[IRCServices Coding] feature suggestion...

Hello there :),

I've been using IRCServices in conjunction with UnrealIRCd for over
3 years now and I'd like to suggest some features to make IRCServices
even more comfortable and user-friendly than it already is :)...

Unreal (and perhaps some other ircds) support virtual hosts these
days. Wouldn't it be a good idea to allow users to store a vhost
whithin their NickServ-account? So, whenever a user identify's
himself, his ident and hostname will be changed by services to
the one previously defined f.e. with 'SET VHOST <user at host>'? (for
security reasons, changing of the vhost-entry could be restricted
to Service Admins only). There could also be an option to define
whether the users host should be changed automatically or not when

    Of course, there would always be the possibility to enhance
services by an extra HostServ-module or whatever. But then users
would have to additionally use a specific HostServ-command to
change their host to the (self-)defined one. Furthermore, there
is already the /VHOST command (at least in unreal) - but the
vhost.conf has to be edited manually by Server Admins. So, you
(as a user) have to give them a passwd for it - which means,
you can either define (and remember) just another new one or
you have to give away your NickServ-pass.

Sorry, if this feature-request hasn't been mentioned for the
first time and/or has already been discussed/rejected/planned-
for-future-versions :)...

RFC please =)...

best regards,
- wahoo -
