     The callback only informs you of the fact that the modes have changed.
If you want to know exactly what has changed, you'll need to keep your own
copy of the modes (c->mode) for each channel.  I may change this for 5.1.

     This is because of the way IRC works: when a server joins the network,
all users are treated as if they had just joined the channels they are in.
There's no way around this without rewriting the IRC protocol.
