IRCd support options #110

We've gotten to the point where, aside from mode definitions, there should be other options that might be associated with the ircd key in connect blocks. I'm thinking of a new IRCd definition syntax which has inheritance:

[ ircd: ratbox ]
    nicklen = 16

[ ircd_cmodes: ratbox ]
    ban = [3, 'b'] 
    except = [3, 'e'] 

[ ircd: charybdis ]
    extends = 'ratbox'
    nicklen  = 32

[ ircd_cmodes: charybdis ]
    quiet = [3, 'q']

These options are only defaults. They will also be settable per-server with ircd_* keys in connect blocks. As such, they must be accessed with methods on a server object associated with an uplink.

  • $server->ircd_opt('nicklen')
  • $server->{ircd} eq 'ratbox' (no more ts6_ircd)

This new stuff would also simplify mode definitions in default.conf (#17). If an ircd is missing a mode from its parent for some reason, we can just set some_mode = off.

updated IRCd definitions in default.conf to use the new format. #110.…
… this also adds a generic 'all_sane_ircds' option to simplify definitions.
