[IRCServices Coding] SENDPASS with encryption...

I'm looking forward to this module. It is what kept us from switching to
encrypted passwords.

Here's some ideas on the abuse problem:
* Only allow usage of the command from hosts that are in the nickname's
* Send the nick!user at host of the user that issued the command in the E-mail
(it won't prevent abuse, but at least you'll know who's been playing around)
* Give a notice to services operators/admins each time the command is issued
* Limit the amount of times the command can be used successively

Hope this helps.

> I've been working on a module that allows use of sendpass whilst using
encrypted passwords (i'll contribute the source to Andy when complete for
inclusion in services), it will work by changing the users password, and
mailing them that.. but i cant find around other users using it miliciously
to aggrovate others..
