Resolves #19

Note: There is no officially standardized way to bold things in IRC. However, as far as I can tell, every major client supports wrapping things in 0x02 to make them bold, and the (few, but large) servers I've tested against all seem to handle it fine.

Telegram, on the other hand, does support bold higlighting, with "Markdown" parsing mode. It's not actually Markdown (it uses *foo* instead of **foo**, then _foo_ to represent italics) but they call it that.

Looks good to me!

I tested with several different configurations to make sure everything works, and it does! Bolding comes over to IRC just as expected, and I do like it! Makes it much simpler to tell who is from IRC and who is actually over on Telegram.
