SSLv3 should never be enabled by default, it is considered broken. Thus, please remove it from the default configurations for all plugins that use SSL (irc, relay, and potentially others?)

It should not be necessary to do /set "PERFORMANCE:-VERS-SSL3.0". For example, relay allows access to /exec which could be fatal in the wrong hands. Thus, strong cipher suite defaults are a must and leaving SSLv3 in the mix is irresponsible.

To show that this is not just me being crazy and paranoid: Google is disabling fallback to SSLv3 in Chrome 39, and plans on removing it altogether in version 40. See what their security chief said about that.

Somewhat related: #234
